Geek & Gaming Cross Stitchery 5 – Bioshock Infinite

Five minutes into Bioshock Infinite and I knew I had to make these. Five minutes in and I was conflicted – I wanted to play the game but the fact that there were cross stitch samplers decorating the iconic lighthouse had me thinking about my needles and thread.

So I kept my hands on the controller until I finished the game for the first time. But once that credit roll ended, I reached for my camera, restarted the game and snapped pictures for me to work with. My needlepoint kit was calling me and I just had to get started.

There are a total of four cross stitch samplers hanging in the lighthouse, the first one over a wash basin directly at the entrance to the tower. This one had a slightly different pattern to it only in the fact that the rose border had more of a gap between corners and no filler bits like the remaining three. I made the pattern for this one first and stitched it before working on the others.
