Well it's taken a little over six months and I don't know how many miles of red but it's done! I didn't have any cds or records to use for scale (I'm all digital, baby) so I am hiding behind it rather then just measure it   Wink



By request here are some slightly better pics of the project itself




All the technical info and more words are on my blog for anyone into that sort of thing.

Love it! I love in your blog you describe yourself as a "manbroiderer" [yeah - i creeped lol]. That has to be the funniest word I've seen in a LONG time.

Another excellent piece.  I bet you won't want to see another skein of 666 for a long time.  It was fun following on your blog, too.

One question, in your picture it looks like you stuck pushpins in the sidewalk.  How does that work?

Thanks for all the love, people. As for the burning question:

One question, in your picture it looks like you stuck pushpins in the sidewalk.  How does that work?

It's a little hard on the thumbs but when you've got it, you've got it  Cheesy Seriously I just didn't take them out when moving it from the wall to the ground for the pic. My wife, Windy, asked the same thing when she saw the pic. For some reason no one believes stitching has left me with the upper body strength to make that possible!
