If you peek into the Big Project SAL thread, you've seen this girl in progress. But now she's all done!
I'm a Harley Quinn fangirl, and wanted to do my first "big" project. So I found some awesome pixel art and ran it through a patternmaker. Much fiddling later, I had a pattern. After two months (and a week...) of stitching, she's all done.



She's worked one over one on 25ct Lugana, so yes, those are some bitty stitches. Finished size is 9 inches by 14 inches 225 x 350 stitches. Plan to get her framed when I can afford it. Now, to plan my next BAP...

@ Phooka... I have watched her in progress. Great job! And speedy, too! I would have gotten bored with such a limited color palate. Very pretty finished!

Thanks for the compliments Smiley
The limited palette was a bit crazy-making at times. There's only 11 colors used, including the two shades of blue for her eyes. Very solid patches of color, and I got very, very tired of grey and reds! But the subject made it worthwhile - I was dying to see her finished. The black stitching on black fabric was a pain, though.
Next BIG project is 50 colors, and I look forward to it, confetti or no.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
