Anchored Longtail boats by 8bitHealey
Anchored Longtail boats
Some boats parked near a street market on Koh Lanta island in Thailand. As the tide went out they would get stranded everyday.

I realized he's just a bigger monkey
WE had an amazing time in Lopburi and the monkey temple ruins were our favorite part. The baby monkeys there are super friendly, in that they want to climb all over you and steal anything edible and shiny. One actually ran off with my glasses for a very scary half second. My boyfriend embraced the monkeys and let them crawl all over him as he tried to get pictures.

Dusk falls on Ayutthaya
We took a long tail boat tour of the three rivers that surround the island of Ayutthaya. By taking the boat, we could visit temple ruins not accessible on the island proper but the opposing banks. I fell in love with the natural energy of the place. Hundreds of Buddha statues all sat facing the horizon, watching time pass. I could live here and watch the sunset with the stone buddhas in silent meditation and feel happy.
Temple Ruin Decor by 8bitHealey
Temple Ruin Decor
I loved the bright strips of cloth and embroidery found throughout Thailand. This zodiac animal banner was hung from a Buddhist Temple Ruin in Ayutthaya.

In the outer temples of Ayutthaya I was moved. I didn't get to spend enough time at these temples and could return and live in this island village. I think I love that its an island because its surrounded by three rivers that converge. That's some Game of Thrones, Riverren awesomness.

I got big hopes for you 2014!

I would kill for that Majora's Mask set, not gonna lie. Your quilts are absolutely amazing!! I'm looking to start making small quilt blocks of characters, maybe expanding into big quilts one day and you have certainly inspired me. Please keep up the great work!

I used a grid to plot out my Kirby quilt; have you ever used grids? I'm not good at math and I'd REALLY like to make my own Majora's Mask, but it didn't work out on the grid I had. How do you go about tackling the 8 bit quilts? Especially the Pokemon, I HAVE to make a Blaziken quilt like your Tyranitar.

I used to use photoshop and a grid system, but now I map it out in Google Excel documents. You can set conditional formatting to have the block show up as specific color and quickly type in a letter to each square. It limits you to only 9 colors, but it helps me get the base design and then I go in and customize designs later to have more colors or just kind of wing it during the actual piecing it together. Oh, here is a youtube video of me showing the making of a quilt - maybe it'll make more sense that way! ( For Pokemon I always use Bulbapedia to see all the different sprite versions of the pokemon and can pick out which gen might have the best design, so I'd look at this gallery for inspiration!…
