It's looking great!!! I never would have thought that some black aida wasn't colorfast! Good luck!

I was planning on buying floss this month and then Jo-Ann's had a 20% off purchase coupon available. Cue me buying 50 skeins. @ 32¢ I couldn't help myself (incidentally walmart is 33¢ everyday but the selection is way sparser and it's further away). Did feel a little bit guilty about stocking up for new projects when I had this one still. So hunkered down and finished it in hoop and hand, because I didn't want to bother with trying to get it back on the scroll frame.

The light pink was a little noticeably darkened by the bleeding before, but I didn't feel the need to rip it out. Also there's a small spot that's either a glob of thread heaven or toothpaste (oops it was sitting on the bathroom counter soaking those three days) that I have to try to remove the rest of the way before I iron. So, it's been pinned/blocked some, but still has a little wrinkling/puckering, but I thought I'd share now.

Oh yeah and there was a slight counting error that cause a few of the items in the lower left to be shifted down a stitch. I only noticed it because the cross and book didn't quite line up the way I'd planned. It's lined up properly in the pattern below though.

I'm including the pattern in case anyone wants it. For the whole piece or just the individual sprites.
Design area is 166x209 stitches. That's 12x15" on 14 count aida.
Edit: 11/2018 - Tag me if you are on instagram and decide to stitch this, please. I would love to see yours. @moiraestitches

Here's a separate floss list.
I think the colors turned out well, but the blues 3843 and 162 probably could have been a shade or two darker.

Even knowing that some of the sprites are a stitch lower than they should be, I can't tell by just looking at it (without looking at the pattern). In other words, no big deal, it all looks great!
