Title: Batman cross stitch
Post by: Krafty_Karasu on October 20, 2013 02:05:54 AM
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.  ;D

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.  :)  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.

WOW, I can only imagine doing all those tiny little stitches.  I love the silhouette so much, and might need to borrow the idea for a project sometime.

WOW! That's amazing. I cross-stitch as well, so I know exactly how much work and time that took. And how many nights you must have closed your eyes and seen weeny red squares lol.

Great job!

Post by: Krafty_Karasu on October 27, 2013 01:28:22 AM
lol.  thank you so much!  ;D

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.  ;D ;D ;D

then I screamed in celebration when I was done.  ;D ;D ;D

Yep I know that reaction really well lol. Working on a weeny teeny aida cloth with blue silk for a friend. I am sure I will be dancing when it's done lol

lol.  dancing is dangerous for me (I'm suffering from some balance issues), so I have to scream.  ;D

AAAAAAMMMAAAZZZINNG!!!!!!!!!!!  P.S. If you don't stab your self at least once while stitching... you can't call yourself a stitcher. In my book anyways.   ;D

Post by: Krafty_Karasu on January 06, 2014 07:58:30 PM
thank you everyone for your comments!!!  I'm so glad you like this!  ;D

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

Oh my stars, this is BEAUTIFUL!  Especially since the red is pink on my screen, lol.

but I'm glad you like it.   :)
