Legend of Zelda Stained Glass Effect Cross Stitch by QueenBex Legend of Zelda Stained Glass Effect Cross Stitch by QueenBex

You guys can finally see the finished cross stitch I've been working on for about a year and a half for my Sister.

18 months in the stitching

92 colours- using DMC threads

37,446 stitches

Design area about 9 x 13.4 inches

Can't recall the frame size...

Shame I couldn't get out some of the creases like on Links face, more often then not it's not noticeable. But when your working on a piece for so long, all the flaws are ingrained onto your mind. :P

 

The top sections were killers for me, the quick changes between colours, so frustrating!! Once I got onto Link, it was a much more enjoyable stitch :)

 

As usual I got the pattern from the Sprite Stitch Forums, made by the wonderful Servotron, found here; www.spritestitch.com/forum/vie…

:blush: Thanks for the kind words, it's always hard to keep motivated on these larger pieces, but it helps to know it's for someone I love. :)
