Great work Phooka!  Your stitches look so tiny and neat.  What fabric count are you using?

BTW, I've unfortunately broke your first rule many many times.  I keep my bigger projects secured with quilting safety pins, and well, blood happens...

Thank you for the compliment. It's 18 count this time. Decided to give my eyes a little break after doing my last big project on 25 count. The 18 is a breeze in comparison, though I kinda miss the itty bitty stitches.

Here's a closer view of my progress, with terrible lighting. You can't tell, but that's bone/bisque Aida.

Started a new project last Tuesday, All Hallow's Eve by Heaven and Earth Designs. It's a freebie off of their website. Not much done, but it's getting there, LOL! Smiley

Here's the mats that I've used:

Design: All Hallow's Eve

Designer: Heaven and Earth Designs for Jessica Galbreath

Fabric 18 count aida in Antique White

Fibers: DMC

Here is what she will look like 48,500 stitches later (!):

Ok, so I originally planned to finish my Secret X-Stitch before Memorial Day, but I've lost precious time due to 2 weekends of Little Leauge, chaperoning a sleep-over for 7 year olds, and helping a friend move.  I'm almost done, the face is the only part left (and to my surprise, I had already completed the eyes!).  I'm a little worried that I didn't lighten it before creating the design, but I'm hopeful the face won't turn out to dark.

What is my price? Wink

In all honesty, I have no idea, so I'm just going to pick Tuomas, from NightWish.

Every time I see it, I want to say Hugh Jackman. But I don't think that's it. I'm dying to know who it really is, though. I can't wait!

doesn't look like much yet and it is a bit darker in real, just the camera makes it a bit lighter. I'm not too sure about the blue, but that is what KG said to use, altho it seems to be more brown on the photo. Will see.

KG does seem to pick out the wrong colors sometimes, especially those darker shades. Sometimes it just picks out a color with a totally different shade instead.
I always check using a DMC floss color card, if I don't like the color I replace it manually.

I am going to tag along here on a project that I need to start for my husband and I upcoming anniversary. I imported a wedding photo that we both like, however the program I used (I found this out after I printed it) has us being dark navy blue instead of black (which you can see from the photo). Should I just go ahead and change the color to black?  Once I have decided that question I hope to start work on this either later this week or next weekend. It will be my biggest cross stitch yet using a 14 count.
