Re: MAY/JUNE Challenge - Video Game Quotes!

Here is mine! The quote's from Zelda 2, and I've always liked it since it's just so darn random. Was there an error in the game? Is his name error? Was it mistranslated? I teach Algebra and Geometry so I wanted to incorporate something math in it, and the first error I teach my young'uns (Alg) about is that if you divide by 0, the world blows up. I'm going to frame this and hang it up in the classroom. Thanks for looking!

Just finished my Entry. This is Kid from Chrono Cross with her opening line. The sprite its for Card Saga Battle.

I'm really happy with how the multi coloured thread came out on the text.

This will be somebody was translating the game script and then put a place holder text of "I am Error" as a *fix me* on his line because it wasn't translated or was translated incorrectly. With the intention that it would be noticed and then fixed, which is clearly wasn't or maybe they ran out of room in the cart to add the correct line so just left it in. Given Error Desu is the Japanese for this, it makes sense.

I had always heard that his name was supposed to be Errol and since the Japanese have similar sounds for "R" and "L", that's how it happened. And plus, since later the guy says "Take this to Error", it always made me believe it was his name in a poor translation, rather than as a placeholder to fix later, like Blank from Final Fantasy (which became its own joke, but that's another story)

Thanks! It took me 2 weeks to find the perfect fabric for the icing. I am really happy with how it turned out. I think I will use it at shows and conventions as an example of applique.

First post, be gentle!

Here are a couple of projects I did recently. The portal one is of the finished bookmark, and the second is just the cross-stitch before I bookmarkised it. I got the patterns from random places, think the companion cube was from on here somewhere...

Hope you like!
