I finished this piece while in the Big Project Stitchalong http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=285603.0

Time Taken: 8 months
Number of Colors: 17
Final Size: 262 x 207 squares
I was motivated to finish this when the new Star Trek Movie came out, so it understandably took me longer than I thought it would.
I'm going to sew it into a pillow, which will be posted on deviantart  ( http://coincollect408.deviantart.com )
For those of you who don't know, this is Spock and Kirk from the Original Series of Star Trek Smiley

When I was growing up, my mom had nearly every episode of the original series on VHS, so I understandably have a soft spot for things Trek-related.  I love this.  The image you used, the pose, is a great piece to begin with, but then the fact that you stitched it, and in B&W no less.  Perfect.

Now move on to something with color and give yourself a well-deserved break!  LOL!  

ROCKS!

i thought this was a drawing! fantastic!

im not sure about making a cushion from it though...i'd be paranoid that someone would SIT on it, let alone spill anything....

i'd frame this and hang it.
