My Extra Life 2014 – Update #1

On October 25th, 2014, I will once again participate in the epic 25 hour video game marathon that is Extra Life, and it’s my sincere hope that you’ll find it in your heart to support me with a tax deductible donation that will go directly to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. 

I’m hoping to hit the $500 mark again this year and so I have decided to raffle off some cross stitching in exchange for donations. The grand prize is a tapestry of the Super Mario Bros 3 World 1 Map, which looks like this:

SMB3-Level1

It’s a little stretched but the original is super tiny

I’ve been working on the project for a few weeks now and I must say it is coming along nicely. There may be a couple of colours I need to adjust as I move towards the next set of panels, as I am already noticing that the locked door has a dark brown in it on the pattern.

This is the first quarter of the tapestry. Shiny!

Looking pretty sweet, right?

Now the big problem is figuring out the ticket to $$$ ratio for donations. I’m thinking 1 ticket for every $5 increment is a pretty fair exchange, considering this is a very time consuming and detailed piece. Yes, let’s go with that.

Extra Life donations are already open so feel free to donate now and/or as often as you’d like. Because this is for the kids, after all. =)
