11  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / The Dark Lord's Apprentice on: July 25, 2014 10:34:25 AM
This is the largest piece I have done to date. Just shy of 25,000 stitches, 17 colors and over a foot tall, it took me 3 years to stitch! It is based on the art from the late nineties VHS box set. It came in gold and silver and I always thought it would look cool in red.

I have to give a big thanks to my wife. I got a lot of guesses on the finished piece through the years and even when it was complete my daughter wasn't sure if it looked very "Vader-ish". I got a little bummed and put it away. Windy is the one who ironed it, washed it and framed it. She has a little more faith in me than I do (I'm pretty lucky that way).

Here is a close up of some of the stitches/colors:

I think I have managed about three "decent" French knots in the entire time I have been stitching. This kinda makes you my hero Wink

The French knot corners are a great detail and the frame is lovely. Great stuff!

Very cool. The skyline is well defined, especially for being only a couple of stitches high!

The sheep are cute and I REALLY like the alphabet. The colors go well and there's a very simple, almost hand-drawn look to it.

But I really love your "love". I couldn't do half that many french knots in 3 years, let alone three days! I am not much of a knotter so I am always impressed by pieces that use a lot of french knots. The way they spread out like sand is a really cool effect. Your choice of color, fabric and font really add to it, too. I just really like that piece. Possibly because I make things for my daughters walls and wish I had made that  Grin

Thank you for sharing.
