11/7/11 Cinderella

Hey everyone!

Just a quick post to update you on the progress for Cinderella over the past few days.  The castle is complete!


Close up of the castle
The back-stitching within the castle is very subtle, but I think it looks really nice. 

Toward the bottom, you can see a big unfilled circle which will eventually be the horse drawn carriage.  It really puts the whole picture in perspective since honestly I didn't even NOTICE the carriage initially.

We are approaching the end of this quarter of the chart.  My goal is to have that portion done by the end of this year.

Happy stitching everyone!

Thanks AmyJo!
I love how the back stitching really brings it all together. It really transforms a cluster of colored X's into a real picture!

It is looking great. It's funny how you don't notice parts of a chart until you go to stitch them.

The tiny details really do make you appreciate all the work someone put into a chart like this.

Woah, this is super impressive! I like to sew but this kind of stitching is on a whole different level.

I have always wanted to be able to sew, but no matter how many times I try it things never turn out the way I want them to. The good thing about cross stitch is that you take everything literally one square at a time!
