I am so gorram flippin' excited about this thing! I've been working on it pretty much non-stop for about 2 weeks now and I just finished it like 5 minutes ago.

Lilac is the planet/town in the opening scenes (the payroll heist) of the Firefly movie "Serenity".

I couldn't wait to show the framed finish like I normally do so here it is in all its un-framed, un-mounted glory!

Shiny, yes?  Grin

ETA - CHART!! (clickable thumbnails) Copies are allowed for personal use, but please do not sell the chart or finished product. Thanks.  Tongue


I used less than a skein of DMC floss for everything except the white. It had a full skein and another couple cuts. So if kitting it up get a skein of each color and 2 of white.

**Whoops.. just noticed a mistake on page 1. The lower left-hand corner of the outlined text box should be exactly like the top corner... and the other 2 for that matter.  Grin  I'll fix it and upload the correct pic tomorrow but just in case y'all need to know right away....  Cheesy

**** Mistake fixed and new page one replaced. Sorry 'bout that. Smiley

Oh my gosh! Extra shiny! I'd better not show the boyfriend, or he'll demand one, too.
