Non UFO Project:I started a "large" and complicated new cross stitch project this year based on a photograph by a really talented Alaskan photographer who was incredibly kind and said I could make a cross stitch of it. The photographer is Mike Gates, go check out his site - his work is amazing!
The pattern was made for me as a prize for winning a competition on dA. It's 10 inches wide x 14 1/2 inches high = 180 x 261 stitches on 18 ct Aida and it uses 147 colours. I am truly intimidated but I did ask for the pattern to be as close to the photo as possible and didn't limit size or colours and I certainly got what I asked for!
In February I dyed the fabric for this using coffee. I started stitching in March and completed the first 3 sections.
The Current WIP's:
Sampler - started
Update: I am behind with the TAST (see side bar) and haven't worked on it this month.
Sagittarius star sign by Lanarte - central area complete
Update: No progress made on this, so I've returned it to the UFO section.
2 sleeping bunnies - a Priscilla babyland embroidery - about half done but I *so* hate doing 1/4 and 3/4 cross stitches.
