So, only one episode of Lost left.  Cry
This is me saying goodbye. I plan to frame this cross stich, place it on my wall and sniff a little every time I see it.



I used six little symbols that represent Lost for me. I needed only six, for the six seasons Lost had. But the choice was hard. After all, so many to chose from. Fishbiscuit, polar bear, Black Rock, hatch, airplane, submarine, Otherville... Am I a nerd? Yes, I am.  

Here's a wrinkled, out of the hoop picture.



Since this is as big as these pictures can get, here's a link to my blog post with clickable pictures, for anyone who wants to see bigger close-ups.

I got sick of Lost halfway through season 2 so congratulations on sticking with it, and making such a great tribute!

This is just fantastic!  I love Lost and am going to miss it big time too!  I wish I could have a Lost finale party, but I don't know a single other person that watches it!

For those who quit watching, it did lose its way for a bit there in the 2nd season, but, man, it came back BIG time later, I recommend getting it on DVD, it's definitely worth it.

Jatoha,

You should check into LOST finale parties around your city. We have an old theater in Portland that is always showing midnight movies and fun stuff like that (plus, happy hour from 10pm til close = $3 beer, $3 pizza, $3 movie) and they've been working with a radio duo to show every episode of LOST on the big screen. And it's free Cheesy

So you might check out your radio websites or your local theaters to see if someone else shares your passion! Good luck and happy viewing!

This rocks! I will suffer Lost withdrawal right there with you! I also have several friends for whom this would make an awesome gift! Nice work, and I love your symbol choices.

I really, really, really love this. Really.

I too think there will need to be LOST support group, I've been crying at least once in each of the last few episodes....
Is it too horrible to copy your design?? I think it sums up the 6 seasons so well.

I'd be afraid to use the code.  The Dharma Initiative dad the bunny are my favorites.

Been thinking about doing some sort of tribute since "Not Penny's Boat" was featured here.

what a great tribute to lost! i agree with dropoffradar, i have also seen "not penny's boat" posted on the craftster website and have been racking my brain to think of ways that i can say goodbye in my own special way Sad although last month i came across free dharma initative food labels online and replaced the labels of most of my food with those! since you are a huge lost fan as well, i'm sure you would appreciate them too. great job!

This rocks my socks.  LOST rocked my socks.  The finale only rocked one sock.  Curious to know what you thought of it?  (I love the six symbols you settled on)

I'm with you, only one sock. It was great, up until the last 10 minutes or so. I did like the way it ended on the island, kind of poetic, full circle and all that. But the sideways world...  Roll Eyes

Great design, beautifully executed, and a sweet tribute to a brilliant show.  As an devoted and appreciative Lost fan, if I could do such exacting stitchery I'd copy it and make one for myself!

The first symbol is the logo for Oceanic Airlines (Oceanic flight 815), fifth is the Ankh thingy that can be seen on the giant statue (while it was still standing) and in Hurley's guitar case.
The sixth is the bottle of wine that Jacob shares with Richard, and later with the Man in Black. Jacob uses the wine bottle to describe the Island to Richard.

I miss it too.  Sad
I'm going to re-watch it all this summer, when I go on vacation from work. I just hope I'll be able to enjoy the earlier seasons without thinking about The Ens.

Very cool. I love lost as much as the next person but I am glad it's over. You could tell they were running out of steam. Better end it then jump the Darma tagged shark.

I've never seen Lost (well minus about 2 minutes of the ending while I was waiting for my show to come on Smiley ) But, this is so great. Everything on it is just so cleanly done. Really really really good.
