cross stitchin'

a little sketch i was working on over spring break just for the hell of it. i was tired of tracing things, and i just wanted to draw freehand, so voila. here's my rooster that i eventually want to do in cross stitch or paint.

Thesis update

just got my yardage back last week, and they are a little bigger than i thought. but then again, 3 yards is 3 yards... 9 ft... 108 inches. oh yeah, and they won't be pooling on the ground. i plan on suspending them from the ceiling so the bottom just hits the floor. 

so here i am starting to embroider the yardage. it's definitely going to take a long time, but so far i have two colors done on my west philly print. yay! still a lot to go though...

some details of the embroidery done so far. 

soooo, i absolutely have so much more work to do, BUT i'm in a good spot!
