Thanks! It's cross stitch on 18ct aida. It's so huge that when I show the whole thing, it's hard to tell. I'll show some close-ups when I get to coloring. I think of it like a coloring book as well; get the lines in, then just years of mindless stitching :) Will still have to count a bit, but the outlines will help a lot. Do the hard work up front when it isn't as painful to pick out if I have to.

Not a big update. Free time is precious nowadays. But progress is progress. I'll soon switch to another project of mine, because that's long overdue.
For now though, here's this.

Pulled out my old WIP this week, and finished the left half. Since the last time I worked on it, I have gotten more sizes of Q-snap frames, so now I can build one that's the perfect size for this! Love my q-snaps; so light. I only feel comfortable using them if the entire stitched area fits inside though; I feel like it clamps too tightly and it could damage stitches if you had to clamp over them.

WOW! That is amazing! I need to get myself some more Q-Snap pieces! I should have bought some when I was in the US this summer.

I just started on this this week :D I've been dreaming of doing it for 3 years now--I did Servo's Mario Through the Ages a couple of years ago, then the Mario 3 World 1 map, then a Zelda-related piece, and finished this up last week:
Image

I started on that maybe a week before my son was born... I had no idea how hard it was to stitch with a newborn around so I just finished it, I think 2 days after he turned 6 months old lol. I feel kind of unsatisfied with it... I had a lot of mistakes with knots that are obvious close-up but not really hanging on a wall, framed.

Anyway... this is going to be a fun project! Funny story, I was on Etsy looking for pre-dyed aida and unknowingly contacted funkymonkey on here (wasn't obvious by the shop name!). But after a lot of deliberation, I ended up buying a huge roll of aida myself and dying it on my own :) -- the color isn't quite as vibrant as DMC 3843... feels like it came out a shade lighter but it's close enough, that I feel like it works.

Image

I'm 0.02% done hahaha (also using a single strand of DMC 3843 along the bottom to mark a grid since I didn't feel like fabric pen worked very well... I plan on removing that once I'm done with everything.
