Tetris Cross Stitch

The text is an in-joke that I couldn't explain if I wanted to. I designed the Tetris pattern to be as satisfying as possible, with a long piece ready to fall into a perfect slot, and clear four rows.

If you're designing a Tetris pattern, don't forget that any rows that haven't been cleared should have at least one gap in them. There is no consensus on the right colours for Tetris pieces, so I just did the best I could with the threads I had on hand.

I've put together some kits including the strip of Aida (with finished edges), thread, needle and instructions. They'll be going up on my Etsy shop soon. Let me know in the comments if you'd like one, I'm open to customising.
