Yep, I have 2 more pages, which equal to the top and bottom of the left.  I'm estimating I'll have it done within 3 weeks.

I've been cross stitching forever, but I'm trying to teach myself to embroider.  I ordered Aimee Ray's Doodle Stitching books for some quick patterns, and then went to see my family for the weekend.  When I got there, my mom showed me a plain little shirt and shorts she had bought for my niece, and I knew I could dress it up!

Now, here's a close up of the shorts.  My neice (who's 2 1/2) kept pointing at it and saying "Audopus, Audopus!"

Hi Guys, here's my latest update on my secret stitch!

Haha, I read this as "Fuck Wills" and thought "Man, someone is anti-Royal Wedding."

Hi everyone!  I'm sure you've all been thinking, "I wonder how AmyBeth is doing with her Rent Stitch?" (LOL)  Well, to be completely honest, I'm a little burned out on it so I switched to a smaller (14x10, so still pretty big) project.  I was kind of inspired by a post from earlier in the year, where someone suggested doing a project and then not telling anyone what it was, just kind of letting people follow blind.  So, I'll tell you this much - its a celebrity and I purposly avoided stitching any part of his face, I'll do that last.  Right now, I'm working on the background, and  I'm two pages in.  Any guesses?

Full stitch so far:

Phooka, your Harley is looking great!  And your stitches look so tiny and neat.  I have always loved black fabric - I bought a book of Hummingbird patterns from Joanne's a few years back and stitched them on black.  It gave a whole new look to these basic patterns.

So here's my update guys - it took me six weeks, but I finally finished this segment. 

The last part I did was the portrait of Angel (orange background) and everything on the right of the letter R.  For some reason, doing all the red part drives me out of my mind - I'd much rather do the portraits.

You'd think with being snowed in here in north Texas for 3 days, I'd have gotten more done.

Sweetdeeds, I had the same problem when Atlanta was snowed in earlier this month!  My first thoughts were, "Yay, I can get this segment done quicker now", but after a while, I started to slow down.  By the end, I felt like I had done nothing!

New_bee, I'd love to see a close up of your work. For my untrained eyes, it seems that you are working too small. Are you making crosses over one thread or two? Because it seems really really small, even for such a detailed packet...

Hope I'm not offending anyone!

I agree now that I look at it closer, I'd just assumed it was a fuzzy pic of aida (don't know how large a cent is)
Then again, in some cases you DO work over single threads, I've got at least two kits on linen that are like that.

I have to agree - I just looked up the kit at http://www.herrschners.com/Product/The+Kiss+Counted+CrossStitch+Kit.aspx and it comes on 27 ct. fabric, and per the description, should be stitched over two strands.  

What this means, is that each stitch you make is intended to cover four squares on the fabric (two across and two down).  By all means, you can complete it by stitching over just one square in either direction, however, you will end up with a much smaller piece.

My favorite are Crayola Twistable Color Pencils - I can't use highlighters, I always end up leaving the caps off.  I love color pencils, but get annoyed at having to sharpen them.  The twistable ones come 24 for $5 and give plenty of color options.  I love mine.
