I hope so! It's having issues with all the shades of blue, so I'm going to have to adjust the image manually before turning it into a pattern.

Anyway, I just finished and washed Kick-Ass. It's drying right now and I need to iron/frame it before I can take pictures. I'm still not sure if I want to add some backstitching to the face to define his features more..

Kick-Ass FINISHED







Yeah, so here are some scans of the final piece. I still need to photograph it though, I don't like how the scan shows off the colors and stitches. 36 colors of floss on 18-count white aida. The letters are glow in the dark, so it reminds me to kick some ass in my dreams Cheesy

Nice job StitchFight!! Smiley

My project has totally stalled today!! I worked on it a bit today and then I couldnt stand looking at it. I need something with BRIGHT colours. I might stitch something smallish this week- then I will realize stitching with a hoop isn't fun and want to stitch my big project again. I hope it works!!

Hurray! Congratulations on finishing stitchfight.  It looks immense! So very impressed.
Here is my little contribution - Ive just started my Bruce Springsteen project.  Im trying to avoid buying too many more skeins of thread so some of the colour choices are  Embarrassed however Ive started and thats the main thing.  It is going to my 4 favourite album covers.  Except I had to substitute born in the Usa for Tunnel of love because Bruce's ass looks easier to embroider than his face.  Dont worry there will be some hilarity for you though as I have to embroider his face on the Born to Run and Darkness on the edge of town covers  Embarrassed

I made a 'New Years Resolution' that I was going to stitch on my large project at least one hour each day I was off.  That worked great my first set of days off in January but the next days off I kept busy with swap projects.  This set off I decided I HAD to work on it so yesterday I spent about 5 hours on it and again today and I'm still not done another page!  Just so many color changes.  I did have to spend time today picking out about an hours worth of work since I had miscounted  Angry but at least it's all right now.  I hopefully will have another page done sometime this month.

Is it bad that I'm fairly certain I know what HistoricalNeedle's mystery project is?

I don't think it's bad - I have a pretty good idea and I'm waiting to see if I'm anywhere close  Smiley
