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…

Ah I see, I'm afraid I don't currently do commissions. So sorry. Try the spritestitch forums, they are very helpful :)

Now that is dedication!  My husband has this on his shirt an just the other day I was thinking how it would make an awesome cross-stitch.  I don't know if I have your dedication to pull it off though...

Step by step, stage by stage, a ton of little victories instead of just the one of finishing it. Every colour completed is an amazing achievement. This is how I motivate myself. :)

It really is a beautiful picture, and the pattern was really good, some of my sprite stitch pals created a simplified version, but after I had already got to work on this one! :P
