PostSubject: Guess Who?   Fri Sep 04, 2009 5:55 am

Hey there, well I don’t really need to introduce myself because I think most you know me over on deviantArt, but for those of you that don’t…

My name is Caroline but my friends tend to call me “Caz” or “Cazzy”. I’m 37 years old so I’m a bit of an old git too :-) I’ve always been creative and I’ve been drawing and building with Lego for as long as I can remember but I’m a bit of newbie when it comes to needlework.

It was something that I always wanted to have a go at, but I think I always feared I wouldn’t have the patience. Anyway, in 2002, I took my mum (who’s also a cross-stitcher) to a craft show as a treat. It got me hook – I decided to get some small kits and stuff and within a few hours of getting home, I had mastered the basics!

My first kit: http://gatchacaz.deviantart.com/art/My-First-Dinosaur-97714088

From then on, I’ve not looked back and pretty soon I had moved on to doing my bigger and more complex pieces! My toughest project to date was a wedding sampler I did for my sister – I didn’t finish it until 18 months “after” her wedding…LOL!!!!

It wasn’t until 2007 that I started designing my own stuff. I guess it was natural progression and there’s something very rewarding about stitching something you’ve designed yourself.

The first piece I designed was my now famous “Cloud in Stitches” which came from a pixel-Chibi I came across on the internet (I’ve only just recently found out who the pixel artist was). It was easy to chart and fun to stitch and when I posted him on DA he became an instant hit.

To date, I have designed and stitched four characters from FFVII and there are lots more in the pipeline. You can view the one’s I’ve done to date here: http://gatchacaz.deviantart.com/gallery/#Cazzy-s-In-Stitches-Series

Patters for Cloud and Zack used to be hosted on LittleMojo’s website before it disappeared. Good news is that I managed to salvage the .PDF patterns from LittleMojo’s site for Cloud and Zack and if anyone would like to stitch them, PM your email address and I send them to you.

Ultimately, I would like to have my own website where I can host all my patterns, but I need a new laptop and charting software so it might be next year before it’s up and running. In the mesntime, if people would like me to donate the patterns to this site, let me know!

Anyway, I’ve waffled on long enough and you’re probably all bored now, so I'll go! Look forwrad to chattign with you all!!!

BTW, I have an account on DA and a blog so please feel free to mooch:

Hello! I'm so glad your here, I love both your DA and blog ^^ And, that might me off topic, but I already love your monthly feature Smile Not only yous show an awesome artist, but you totally chaged my opinion about the blackwork cheers
And I always loved the chibi Cloud and Sephiroth Embarassed I'd love to stitch Cloud someday, but that probably won't be soon, because I already have too many pending projects >.<

Ah, welcome to the forums! ^^ This whole bit of "guessing game" nonsense eludes me, but I have to say, you really remind me of someone...... lol!

Wow that was probably the best intro I have ever read. I'm so glad you excited you decided to join our forums. I would love you have your patterns uploaded to our site but I think I'll leave that up to you to decide.
