After about two years and almost 80,000 x's (is one stitch half of the x or the whole thing?), my Super Mega Punch Out Project is finished. It measures about 12" by 28" so it's pretty big and I have yet to find a frame that will actually fit it. I really don"t want to spend $150 to custom frame it so I'm not sure where it's going to go yet. I'm kind of sad to see it finished because now I have nothing to do. Sad

That's dedication! And fantastic Smiley

If you can't find a frame, since it's a flat piece you could construct and stain one maybe.

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.

Thanks guys!  I actually started out stitching this for my husband and I just happened to finish it one week before his birthday *cough*almost3yearslater*cough* so this is what he's getting this year.  I think I'm going to buy some braces for stretching painter's canvas and stretch it over that.  That way I can customize the length.
