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

I've got a few large projects on the go.  I think I'm going to try to finish this one this year.

It's quite involved, but I enjoy all the colors involved. ^_^

I know right? haha I'm not sure what I was thinking when I bought that kit.  It may be big project stitch along 2014-2015 for that one! Cheesy

(So no matter which way, horizontal or vertical, I take a pic of this it flips it.) Here is the beginning of my project.  It's the same series (Disney Dreams) like the one I posted earlier but this is a scaled back version.  Once finished it will be Tinkerbell and the buildings below.

I figured I will finish this one first before I tackle the giant Cinderella one.  Cheesy

Junior_Mint- Looks great so far!  Can't wait to see more progress.

Well my huge Japanese Beauty pattern is a couple stitches off and I can't really fix it because I've done too much stitching.  While it looks OK, it's bugging me and I'm getting a little burnt out on it.  So I set her aside and decided to start the Disney Dreams Little Mermaid (the smaller 7" by 5" version).  Rather than randomly attacking it like I sometimes do with patterns, I've started in the upper left corner and am stitching 10x10 areas at a time.  I've done 200 squares so far and there have been like a trillion color changes.  But it's going to look pretty cool when I'm finished.  I hope.

Hi!  I started the Big Project Stitch Along 2007, and am back as I finish this:



My progress thus far.  I started in 2013, want to finish this year.  This is the most difficult project I've worked on, sooo many thread colour changes and lots of blending.
