I am entirely unsure if I did anything right.

I see you already got some comments on the technical side of things and those people are great people to listen to who do great work of their own so I won't try to add my nonsense when you have the help of true master crafters available to you.

But on the artistic side I will say that it doesn't matter if you use two threads for the letters or eight threads of various colors at the same time for back stitch. Sometimes you can see the white cloth behind it and sometimes you can go from right to left, down to up* 

All that really matters is if you like how it looks and if you are happy with the results!

And if I had done this Avatar piece I would be very happy!!!

I'm 23 and addicted to Avatar. Heck, I made myself a purse shaped like Appa! (He's in the crochet forum.) So I think this is MOOOOST excellent! You did a wonderful job on the Earth Kingdom symbol, and that picture of Iroh... is just icing on the cake.  Cheesy

I love this!  I also watch Avatar and I'm kind of excited for the live action movie!  I love Uncle Iroh as well and therefore named my fish after him. (The other fish is Zukko!)

Anyway, back on track here, I love this cross stitch and I would love to have this in my home.  Would you share the graph or something of the sort?

Nice stitching, and there is nothing wrong with being a dork, nerd or geek! Cheesy
