the_other_sandy: Kaleidoscope (Kaleidoscope)
Monty Python and the Holy Grail pattern by Weelittlestitches on Etsy.

This project was a great disappointment for me. The pattern was so cute, but it didn't come with a fabric color suggestion and, left to my own devices, I chose exactly the wrong one. To be fair, every fabric color I looked at was either the exact same color as one of the characters or clashed wildly with one of the other colors. I'd hoped the parchment color was just different enough that the white would show up on it, but I was wrong and had to add some backstitching to all the white bits. Boo.

Anyway, it's done. Click to embiggen.

Cool! I'm impressed with all of the detail in the designs. The Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog looks adorably vicious, and there's even a shrubbery.

I really liked this pattern. The characters even manage to look like the actors who played them, not just generic people.

You can't really tell from the photo, but Arthur's crown is gold metallic thread and Zoot's veil is glittery light effects thread.

Hey, guess what? I have not actually dropped off the face of the earth, though it seems like it sometimes.

Anyway, I (finally) got your messages and looked at your cross stitches and no, I don't want you to stop sending me updates if you don't mind keeping them up. I miss LJ...my friends list is mostly a ghost town. =(

I LOVE your Holy Grail project! Such great detail. What do you do with all these things when you're done with them? You must not have wall space to hang them all up.

Hope things are good with you, nice to see you're still stitching. =)

Ah, people and their real, non-internet lives. Whatever that's like. ;-)

I don't mind updating you. I don't really know anyone who's into cross stitching outside of Tumblr.

People keep asking me what I do with them all, but honestly I enjoy making things more than I enjoy having them once they're made. Some of them I give away (almost everyone I know has something I've made, even if it's just a magnet), but the rest are in a box in my closet. I might frame some of them someday, but I'm not in any rush.
