Let's keep at those large-scale and/or long-term projects!

The 2009 thread can be found here.

Finished projects we saw in '09 include
- panul's Christmas scene
- MissKerouac's Elizabeth
- sophieangele's Adam Lambert
- littlebiskit's Christmas stocking
- coincollect408's Spock and Kirk

I'm living/working in Yosemite Nat'l Park til further notice! Blogging about it here. No swapping for me, and minimal crafting time, for the coming months. Almost done with library school! That sums things up for now.

Hurray!  I'm glad to see this board up!  I will be starting (soon, after I finish 2 swaps) another big-for-me stitching project.  It's a picture of a whale and her calf.  I'll post pics as soon as I can!

I am walking 12 hours straight for my local Relay For Life event.  [a href="http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR/RelayForLife/RFLFY11MW?px=16690269&pg=personal&fr_id=30095"]Please support me![/a href] I'm only 40% to my goal! =0(

I'm currently working on a giant Ocarina of Time project.  I'm working on 22 ct. Aida and the finished product will measure (approximately--I don't remember the exact measurements) about 10 in X 12 in. Cheesy

Here's what the finished product will look like:

Here's what I have done:

He will love it and the look on his face when he finally realizes what it is (it's too big of a project for me to keep secret for long) will be so worth it, but good Lord I am already tired of background stitching!

Oh man!  I can't wait to see that Ocarina of Time Project!!  That looks amazing!  Since the last thread I've finished Super Macho Man...

...and I'm currently working on Soda Popinski.  After I finish him I'll have only four more characters to go!  I hope so cause I'm kinda sick of looking at Punch Out characters.  Cheesy

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad

I've always wondered what disease cured ham had.

I started this project last August -- but had to take a 2 month break after my cortisone shot in my thumb.
I'm back at it and I hope to complete this in March sometime.
It is stitching on 14 count - Baby Blue Aida and about 160 x 160 stitches
Bleach - Hitsugaya Toushirou

Historical: ack! I love Toushirou! He looks so good. I would love to do a set of the Bleach Captains/Lieutenants portraits sometime, but it will be a long time coming. I have so many big projects lined up...

Sewsew, I remember seeing your Punch Out project on Spritestitch. My boyfriend would love it; he's a huge PO fan.

Yay for nerdy crafters! I'm so happy I've finally found my niche. Cheesy I will hopefully have another progress pic up after this weekend with a bunch more done.

@leannerd : That looks so cool! I'm so excited to see this finished; Link is one of my favorite video games characters. Cheesy
@Sewsew-a-Gogo : This is looking amazing! I'm so glad you stuck with it, its going to look phenominal when you're finished.
@HistoricalNeedle : I've been watching you on DeviantArt and I must say your cross stitch still looks amazing Cheesy Almost finished.
I just started a project that's 250x100 stitches (not including a border I might do), and although its fairly smaller than the last project I finished, is it big enough to post pictures in this thread?

I'm in the process of doing my biggest project yet- hopefully it's big enough to qualify as a 'big project'. Grin
It's a panel from my favorite Calvin and Hobbes strip, and is kind of morbid. I've realized how odd it sounds, when people ask, "Oh! You're cross-stitching? What's it gonna be?" And I reply, "Er, a dead bird."

But anyway. It's 122x237 on 18-count Aida. I don't have a current picture, but I do have one from January 06, as well as an image that gives you an idea of how far along I am.

[January 6]


The blue portion of the picture is the stuff I've gotten done since the 6th. I'm about half-way there, so it should take me about another month to finish. Maybe longer, since I'm in school now, and have less time to work on it.

Anyway, it's nice to have a place to show my progress, since otherwise, I feel like I'm getting nowhere with this thing, haha.
