Krafty_Karasu, that is one huge project! Good luck on finishing it!
thanks! I'll need it. I just keep telling myself, "it could be bigger. it could be much, much bigger" and that helps keep me going. lol. the stitches are tiny, but it's a little easier to handle this way.
Awww, KK I'm sorry to hear things were sucky for you in AZ. We never did get together for lunch! I missed a great opportunity there, I fear.
But I'm glad to hear that you are doing better in your new home. Your project looks pretty EPIC! Can't wait to see the finished product!
too much sun (though I saw pictures from a recent storm in Sedona and Buckeye that were fabulous), too hot, not enough greenery...it just wasn't doing it for me. and I had such high hopes too. I never got back to Jerome either. yes, we missed a great opportunity. but we can at least say hi here and keep an eye out for new creations from each of us.
and thank you!
KK, I'm sorry you had a hard time but I'm glad it's improving. Your cross stitch projects are always so impressive. I would stop embroidering way before finishing them, you have so much patience and perseverance! This new black cross stitch will be stunning for sure.
thanks, yoopidou. I'm glad you've enjoyed my past cross stitch projects. I'm anxious to get this done because of the black and white design as I've never done one before and so far I'm loving how it's turning out.
KK, glad to see things are improving and that you are back.
thanks, pinokeeo. it's good to be back. and now I can catch up on all the crafty goodness I missed!!!
KK glad you're back! And that cross-stitch looks like it's going to be amazing!
thanks, Freakie!! I'm hoping it will be amazing. it better be after all this work I've put into it. and after scrapping my last attempt at a project like this.
I remember you, KK! I hope life gets better and better for you. And wow, on the cross stitch! You make the most amazing stuff.
awww...shucks! *^_^* you make pretty amazing stuff yourself! I have so much of your steampunk stuff and whatnots to catch up on. I'm gonna be here for a while I assume.
KK--I know about becoming obsessed with finishing something...I can't believe it is going to be such a solid piece...you have so much patience, but it will be something you will treasure since it means so much to you! So far, it looks like a lot of black to me, so I will have to follow you on FB better to see how it is coming along! Glad you are settling in your new home as well...
Thanks, everyone...my 86 year old aunt died, leaving my 91 year old uncle to take care of himself...but now, the church ladies and some relatives closer to him are stepping up to the plate, so all is well...I will visit him this summer to make sure all is well...family is very important to me...
technically the picture shows black and two shades of grey, but the second shade was only half done, so you can't see any proof of it in such a small picture...from so far away. but yes! a big solid piece based on Marilyn Manson...it means a LOT. I don't do posters anymore (I would if I framed them all), so I don't have much in the way of display pieces of him, other than a small, simple project I did a while ago. I think I posted it on here...
funny thing that new home situation...I'm moving again. lol. this house is just a rental, but a new house has been purchased and moving is happening all this month. then I'll be settled for real. and my bedroom...will be mint green!!!!!!!!! I'm so excited!!!
and I'm so, so sorry for your loss. *hugs*
KK - that's going to be epic! I start a lot of cross stitch and then get overwhelmed and stop.
thank you! I totally get the overwhelmed feeling. I did that once already not too far into this project. then one day it just took hold of me and now I can't put it down!
I think I'm caught up with everyone.
and I'm loving everything I've seen so far. I still have tons and tons of other projects to catch up on though. maybe I'll catch up one day!
