11  How Could Hell Be Any Worse? in Needlework: Completed Projects by whateverjames on: January 24, 2011 09:00:46 AM
It is finally done. My tribute to one of my favorite bands. We both turned 30 in 2010 and I thought this would be a great way to celebrate. It has been a real labor of love.

Started 8/2009
Completed 1/12/11
13.5 inches square
Almost 13,000 stitches!

There is some more blah blah on my blog if you are into that sort of thing  Wink Otherwise here is a shot of this piece and the one that came before. The CD is blank and just there for scale.

Comments and suggestions are always welcome.

12  Pump It Waaaaay Up! in Needlework: Completed Projects by whateverjames on: October 31, 2010 05:57:38 AM
I just finished this piece last night! I probably could have finished it a couple days ago but I was in the hospital Monday night and didn't know if the doctors would take the "joke" the right way

Here it is a little closer:

All the Blah Blah Blah can be found at my blog. The specs on this piece however are 14 count light blue aida with DMC Bright Red #666. It has really become my go to red, which I am really surprised by how much I use it on the fly. I wanted to do a real simple border in white but the white was just having a hard time being seen in the light on this blue cloth. I couldn't find another color I was excited about so I thought it may be best as is. So it's hanging on the wall in the living room, just in the hoop, welcoming everyone to come in and relax  Wink  Thanks for checking this out.

Hi All! I finally got my cross stitch tattoo and am totally stoked! Been lurking in this board for a while (no crafty tattoos to post until now). I love how even folks who do the same craft don't seem to get stuck with the same tattoo!

Here it is up close:

And with the @$$-clown it's stuck with:

I got it with a little bit of my favorite color thrown in and tried to keep it as simple as possible. Really thinking about a skull and scissors or skull and needles for the other side...hmmmm

14  Punks Not Dead in Needlework: Completed Projects by whateverjames on: June 21, 2010 05:43:39 PM
Well it's taken a little over six months and I don't know how many miles of red but it's done! I didn't have any cds or records to use for scale (I'm all digital, baby) so I am hiding behind it rather then just measure it   Wink

By request here are some slightly better pics of the project itself

All the technical info and more words are on my blog for anyone into that sort of thing.

Finally finished! A little later then I had hoped but I am so happy it's done! So much black and red. I am taking the rest of the night off before starting my daughters bday present!!!

Sorry no updates, etc. but the internet did not seem to like me the last couple weeks.  Huh

Anyway here is where I am at on my Punk Is Dead project. So...close.

Windy just came home from our local craft/framing store and says "Can you finish that by tomorrow"? It's 60% off framing and mounting through tomorrow and she wants to do that for my fathers day gift. I guess I should start posting and start stitching.

17  Bored To Death (of staring at my big project) in Needlework: Completed Projects by whateverjames on: May 20, 2010 08:32:02 AM
I saw this on a shirt, or a bumper sticker, or something and I just needed a break from the black and red wall that my big project is turning into. I whipped it up while Windy and I were watching Alice In Wonderland. Sorry there is not something more to say but it's a small and pretty straight forward project. Oh, I made the font pattern on the generator at www.crosstitch.com.

Yay! First word is done, two more to go  Undecided I'm really excited and think it's coming out really rad. I am going for slightly messed up look which has been very helpful with some of the mistakes I have made lol.

The start I made on the second line shows that I have been "blocking" the letters by doing the outline. I am working from a chart and its too much to keep counting lines and stitches while trying to watch a movie or hold a conversation so I started doing it this way so I dont need the charts nearly as much!!!

Ok, I decided to stop lurking and start joining! I decided to stop doing little wordy pieces for a while and start working on some larger stuff. Hopefully some of it will make it into frames and up on the walls here at home but we will see.   Smiley

One of my dream projects is to do 200x200 count pieces that are album covers from albums that I found influential, either to my life or to my music. But first I decided to do a big "wordy" piece. When it's finished it's going to say "Punk's Not Dead" and the A in dead is going to be the anarchy logo. So here is where I am so far:


and with my cell for scale:

It's been slow going the first month just because we have had some family emergencies and other stuff going on but so far I am pretty happy with it!

20  This Years Valentines... in Needlework: Completed Projects by whateverjames on: February 19, 2010 01:22:44 PM
So Valentines was last weekend and that means Windy got something cross stitched instead of shiny or put-it-in-a-vase-and-watch-it-die-y!

I know the first one has been done a lot but I have been meaning to do it and since I can't top last years model (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=290721.0), that gave me free reign. I guess this is what it feels like to have immunity on Project Runway. I could cross stitch a monkey opening a coconut with a turtle and it won't matter because last year was so great! That said I was really happy with how it turned out and she loved it too. Already framed and displayed too!

The second I did just because I have wanted to do it for a while now and never got around to it. I was going to do it a different way but I really wanted something fast so I did a pretty straight forward thing.
