To be fair, this is generally what an in progress game of mine looks like, only with more clashing of the colours and less pleasing composition of the individual pieces in the big clump on the side.
Now all I have to do is teach myself to crochet and I'm set. 200 squares to go. I'll keep you all posted. I can already see the need for weekly updates on this to keep me motivated to actually do the darn thing. And I'm already dreaming of other 8 bit crochet square projects, like fire flower cushion covers and final fantasy dragon wall hangings... ah, the world of 8 bit possibilities!
