So... It's been so long since I've stitched anything. I think I took like a 4 month break from this. But it's finally done, so here it is. Smiley

10k stitches, approx. 5 1/2"x5 1/2".

Thanks, guys. Smiley I enjoyed it, most of the time. When I was stitching row after row after row of dark brown, I hated myself a little, haha.

I saw the little picture on Craftster's homepage and was all, "Hey, that looks like Anderson Cooper."  Lo and behold, it was!  Well done, you!

Thanks a bunch!

@Lylak Tigress - I chose Anderson Cooper because I'm starting to make a quilt; one that will probably take me twenty years, and that will have 100 squares like this. Each 100x100, and each with an interest of mine. Basically, what makes up who I am in a quilt. Why he was first, I don't know. I think partially because I knew if I could look at anything for as long as this took, it'd be Anderson's face. Wink He's my favorite broadcast journalist, and someone I look up to.

@SciFunk - There're 19 colors. Smiley

How cool! I could tell it was Anderson Cooper from the thumbnail on the front page.

I love the idea of the quilt of you. What's coming up next?

What a great idea.  That inspires me to do something similar, but I don't know if I could think of 100 things that define me.  Good luck with that.  And I hope you keep showing us what you come up with.  It would be interesting to see what 100 things make up "you". Smiley

hipmama1970 : Next up is an image of Nightwing, a character from DC Comics. His was the first comic I read regularly. Smiley

Haha, I don't know how many things I'll be able to think of. But it's not like I'm running out of time to think of them, at the rate I'm going. Wink
