About

Name: Bettina Le Rogue
Race: Half-elf
Born: West of the Flow

Bettina is the middle child of an elf mother and a human father. Her sister, brother and her were raised sheltered and away from most of society, learning many skills and magics that most beings don't get taught. She was quite powerful in her abilities and was uncommonly smart and clever, but she didn't have many friends and wasn't sure what to do with herself for her life and future, besides helping her family run their shop. She felt unfulfilled in her creativity.

One day, a little white dog (who was a little annoying) wandered into her small village, spreading quirky Tales of underground monsters, puns, friendship, love and determination. These tales inspired Bettina so much that she started writing songs and poems based on the tales she heard. This led to her becoming an entertainer of sorts, going to different towns and villages and putting on little skits and performances based around these characters and stories, and she had many friends and fans and was happy. For a time. However, as our heroine became more famous and popular for her performances, she felt like she was acting more for her audience than for herself, and she felt less creatively fulfilled.

It was then that Bettina came across a magical book that revealed stitching patterns of the characters and objects in the Tales she loved so much. Intrigued, and with a vague memory of happily stitching patterns as a child, she purchased the book, gathered supplies, and decided that she would take up the craft once again. It was a journey of trial and error, because she was too proud to ask for help. She made many mistakes along the way, but she was rebellious and left these mistakes in, because she wanted to be quick and nimble. One day, while she was in the market looking for supplies, she happened to run into the great wizard Sirthre, who had written the book of underground monster tales she had found. This wizard was very kind and gave her some tips and guidance, plus she invited Bettina to travel with her to the fabled town of Stitchwind to go on quests and adventures and meet other stitchers like her, so she wouldn't be alone in her journey. And thus, our intrepid half-elf heroine answered the call to adventure and followed the wizard.

Design: Inspired by ColorBettina Levy Design InspiredByColor.jpgBeach Ball; made in Stitch Fiddle using PicoTala's palette.
Artist Studies: Durene JonesBettina Levy Studies DureneJones.jpgPattern For my Durene Jones tribute, I picked a 2019 design of hers, because it had lightbulbs in it, and lightbulbs are special to my twin sister (it's the cutie mark of her ponysona OC, Bright Idea), so while I'm doing a quest, I thought it would make a nice gift for her. ^_^

What I learned: Jones's style is very subtle and detailed. I enjoyed making the frame from 3 colors, so close to each other you can just barely tell them apart. I also went rogue and experimented with my variegated thread on the words. Another way I went rogue is I hadn't realized that i made the frame too small at first, so I had to improvise and change the words. I would have stuck to the design, but I think it's good because it's more personal for my sister.

Oh, and one other thing. Back stitching was pretty interesting for me. I didn't mind the 2-thread one on the big bulb, or outlining the words to make them pop, but with the rest? 1-threading it in the spaces in between the proper holes?? Didn't really enjoy that. No thanks. Can't say it doesn't give it a cool effect, though.
Stitch SpotBettina Levy StitchSpot.jpgI have a bag for my extra materials, and I can watch YouTube/Netflix from my computer and easily zone out while stitching in my room. It's also where I most like to sort and organize my colors. The couch is pretty old and dirty, so my mom wants to put it out, but I think it's quite comfy. (Oh, and that's a poster from when I went to Atlantale in 2018. That was such a blast!)
Topsy TurvyBettina Levy TopsyTurvy.jpgI had a lot more fun with this quest than I thought I would! Having / stitches on top of \ ones was a real effort to get used to, especially when attempting to do so going up rows instead of down. :upside_down: I could have been done a lot quicker if I had stopped with the quote at the bottom, but I wanted to include the fox jokes, and then the whole thing looked kinda empty somehow, so I added flowers! I pulled every element from a different pattern/design, so I feel like a real artist having combined them in my own unique way. :grin:
Stash SystemDiscovered organization inspiration:Thread Colour Display I probably wouldn't do it this way myself (because I'd have to stitch all the numbers in), but it looks so cool and organized!
Revisit a UFOBettina Levy RevisitUFO.jpgThe before picture isn't quite from the beginning of the month, really May 11. Still, I made a lot of progress, especially to the bottom with all the boss monsters. ^_^
Take InventoryTook inventory of their stash:Stash Airtable
