I had started working on this back in June or July (I forget which) for the Summer Nerd games battle royale: Marvel vs. DC.  I obviously chose DC.  this was done on 28 count because I didn't want it to turn into a poster.  if I had done it on 14 count, it would have been more than 20 inches wide.  and because each stitch was so tiny, I was unable to finish in time to enter the challenge.  but I finished it around the very end of September.  and here it is:



my fingers were killing me by the time I was done.  and I even drew blood a few times when I'd stab my finger with the needle.

thank you thank you.  Grin

the picture isn't that great though.  it looks like I only used 4 shades of red when I actually used 8.  and in real life, only 2 colors look the same.  *sigh*  bummer...

oh well.  I still like it.  Smiley  now to get it framed...

I can't believe you finished this with a thread count so small! Beautiful work. If there's anything wrong here I can't spot it. The pose is so dynamic too.

lol.  thank you so much!  Grin

actually, I was seeing black squares.  the reds were broken up enough that they didn't drive me too crazy, but every time I picked it up to work on it more, I died a little inside.  lol.  I always felt that I would never finish the black.  then I screamed in celebration when I was done.  Grin Grin Grin

and in my book, mauoijenn, if you stab yourself dozens of times while stitching, it makes you a human pin cushion.  Wink
