I love it! It's like Canada week on craftster. I like the way you broke up the fill.

More of an obsessive need to get the colour right than dedication, but thanks!

I'm doing the same thing with my next big project--11X14 inches, background all stitched. I don't know why, but I prefer it.

It's so cool that this is bringing back happy memories for people.  Cheesy
14  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: What do you do with your finished projects? on: August 29, 2012 08:04:24 AM
So far, I give mine away. Like someone said upthread, people are really happy to receive them. Some I start with a friend in mind, and some I figure out a recipient for later. I saw someone on tumblr say "For me, the joy is in the making, not in the having". That about sums it up! All I really want to keep are my pictures.

When I run through all the obvious people to give stitching to, I'm going to start offering them up on facebook to whoever wants them. When that fails, I'll move on to tumblr and message boards.

I think wrapping with ribbon might work, unless the outer hoop is concave on the inside (I can't tell from that picture). It's made to accommodate fabric, so adding some ribbon in there shouldn't hurt... as long as you choose a thin ribbon, wrap tightly, and don't overlap too much. My worry with the ribbon is that it might slip. I've only added ribbon to wood hoops, where the grain of the wood keeps the ribbon from sliding around.

Wow, I haven't seen THAT symbol in a LOOOOOONG time! Smiley brings back memories of my childhood!  nice job!

It's making a comeback--I see it on hats and t-shirts all the time. Granted, mostly at the kinds of places where you'd find a bunch of CBC fans: farmer's markets, music festivals, university campus...

Here's another image conversion of mine. This is the retro version of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation logo. The CBC makes government-funded TV and radio, which I listen to all day long.

Some progress pics:

I'm thrilled with how this turned out. I'm getting much faster and cleaner with my stitching, which is super satisfying.

Yes, I think that the design could be altered to fit almost any well-intentioned-but-frustrating question.

How's my chemo going? FUCK YOU that's how it's going.
How's my divorce going?
How's potty training going?
etc. etc. etc.

Even just "How's my day going?"

Wow! I especially love the sloth. The texture on it looks so touchable.

I love how clean the lines are. Such a fun piece!
