I never really thought about it as being Ash (I'm assuming you mean the Pokemon Ash) on the cliff, but now that it's been put out there, I can't un-see it.
I found the image here so, I don't think it was originally supposed to be him. But just between us, that's how I'm going to explain it to anybody who asks from now on. :grin:

It certainly looks like Pokemon Ash! And it'd be easier to say it is than try to come up with something else!

I know it's been a while since I posted a picture, but I was having some major issues with choosing colours over the last week. I went back to Micheal's twice more after the last picture I posted. Yay for 15% off sales!

Anyway, I've been keeping track of the amount of stitches I've gotten done and I thought this would be an interesting picture to put up. I just reached 10% completed! Woooo! :yahoo:

So here's a photo of the full canvas with some help from my boyfriend (he's the legs it's laying on). Oh, and ignore the mess in the background, I took this in my geek room and the BF's guitar customizing stuff tends to make a giant mess.

Congratulations on 10%!

Just had a thought, have you considered trying to get hold of a cone of the colour you're using most of? (939, I think you said?). They are great value to me as they have 50+ skeins worth of thread on them. I tend to buy them in 310 and B5200, saves me a lot of money!

You call that a mess? XD

Wow! That's going to be big!!

Cones of colour? I've never seen a cone of thread, especially not DMC.

You get 425 metres on a cone. I know a lot of DMC sellers cut their 8m lengths straight from these, but some sell the cones directly. I think it's worth investing in them, especially when you use a lot of a particular colour! :D

How many BMH-hours can a cone support?
