Hi!  This was my first attempt at anything stitching related.  I wanted to make something for my husband and he really isn't a hat/scarf person and it had to be something interesting to keep my attention.  We just happened to watch Fight Club a while back and inspiration struck!  

(Favorite picture of it's progress)

Just keep stitching...


All stitching done...


A little bit closer of a shot...


Coloring details in.  (I wish I would have just done the people.  Sad  Oh well.


All done, before framing...

So what do you think?  Smiley

This is really cool. And I like how the crayon creates a contrast.

I think it totally rocks my socks!  Cheesy

The flames look great, as does your coloring!  I bet your husband loves it.

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

i think you did a great job!  I think the tinting looks awesome, it's fine that you didn't just tint the people.  You were pretty brave to tint the linen after you have done your stitching.  i really like that the flames are the only thing filled in with stitches, it make for a nice touch.  keep up the good work.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
