I've made some progress on my huge Zelda map (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=368565.msg4483858#msg4483858). It feels like it's going slowly, but I guess that's a lot because of the scale of it - each of those stitches i so small and I've still got so much left to do...

The part I've covered this far is about 35 x 55 cm (14 x 22 inches).

Here is my recent baby dragon update. Some excellent new too!! I didn't make a mistake-- well I did sort of. I didn't miss any rows!! Now I think I forgot to mark some rows off. I should be able to figure out what I did wrong in the next few days. Smiley

Oh, such good news. You really make awesome progress indeed. How do you do that?

I make little progress, compared to everyone else here, but I am proud of what I can do in between teaching and correcting. Here are two pics. Bit wrinkled, but I just took the hoop off, eager to continue Wink.





I LOVE that little elfen door, with all those colours.

I've not been very good with updating, but I've gotten the unicorn on the dress done.

I've been working on my current blackwork project since the end of May now and am slowly getting through it!!  I have so many cross stitch projects that I want to get going on but need to get to the end of this blackwork tunnel first!!

I've finally finished the four cuffs -



woop!! and am now embarking on the two collars.  I *really* underestimated how long this would take me to complete.  I think there are already well over 100+ hours spent on the project, and at least another 40 or so to go *I think*.  This linen is totally impossible, uber uber fine and incredibly tiny holes, so is currently causing just a bit of a headache!!  I will be very glad when they are finally finished and I can see them on the finished costume, but that moment looks like it will be forever away!! Here's the current progress on the first collar -



According to my boyfriend it resembles a birds eye view of a motorway at the moment lol.  I really hate stitching straight lines that are 17" long!!  Blackwork rant over Smiley

@goldenloli - I *love* that unicorn!! So pretty Smiley

@historicalneedle - woahhhh your dragon is looking amazing!!

I hope no one will mind me jumping into this thread so late in the year.  I've been a part of Craftster for 5 1/2 years but most of that time has been spent on the Quilting, Crochet and Swap boards.  I learned to cross stitch when I was about 10 (a long time ago) and did quite a bit back then but once I got married and had children that craft kind of got put to the side.  I've done small projects, like bookmarks, occasionally but nothing of any size.  A few months ago I saw a Hoopla Swap and decided to give it a whirl.  I also did a private swap involving cross stitch and a few other items.  I then found this thread and it inspired me to attempt something largish and found a pattern I mostly liked so decided to go with it.

I know many of you posted pictures of what you are creating at the beginning of this thread but I don't want to do that since I'm eliminating a portion of the pattern in my project - I wanted a different look - and if I post a picture and then you see the finished project you'll wonder why I skipped that part  Grin

This is the first time I've cross stitched anything that has multiple pages of pattern (didn't even know multi-paged patterns existed until now.)  It's also got the most colors I've ever used in one pattern (I think there are around 35.)  This pattern has 6 full pages and 2 half pages.  I plan to post progress pictures as I finish a page.  I don't stitch very fast and will probably only get to it on my days off or evenings so don't expect it too fast.

So, here's my first progress picture - I'm in the Dominican Republic right now and this was stitched while sitting on the beach working on my tan  Cool

               

I'm sure as I post more pictures you'll eventually figure out what it is.

I managed to get a page done yesterday but if you look at the photo you will see it's the same one I did the other day.  I went to start on page 2 and after a few stitches I thought 'there is no way I'm going to fit another 2 1/2 pages on this fabric.'  So I re-counted and realized, in my enthusiasm to get going, I had started page 1 in the wrong place!  So about 1 1/2 hours later I had all the stitches removed and was ready to start in the correct place.  If you look at the photo, just to the right of my stitching, you will see a little x - that's where I originally started the piece and you can see how far out I was.

       

I'm now on the right track and have managed to get page 2 started.  We fly home tomorrow and I hope to make some progress during the trip and on our layover.
