Finished A Stitch In Time

By salford1
115 Favourites

14 ct aida
17.7 x 22 inches
76,384 stitches
40 shades of Anchor stranded cotton

I took eighteen months to complete and even Christopher was impressed citing "Did you do that? The detail...the stitches...oh that's fantastic!"

Currently working on the ten actors who have portrayed the Doctor - from Hartnell to Tennant.

Oh. My. God! You are my cross stitch hero! It took me months to finish my little cross stitch pic and its smaller than a DVD case... You are truly talented and have just inspired me to try something over the top for my next project. Thank you so much, it's just so beautiful! And I'll make sure to check out all your other doctors  :heart:

Hug It's made so many people happy all over the world and in the least likely places I could imagine cross stitch be recognised.

It was a labour of love to stitch too - never thought the subject matter would see it either.

Thank you Love

Never would I have guessed that was stitched Just too Fantastic for words. Even more so that the man himself got to see it.

so awesome and Christopher Eccleston is my fav doctor.

Christopher has actually seen this and cited it as "fantastic" and he was smitten with it, he reversed in affect the :squee: factor.
SqueekyMoonkin's avatar
awesome, how were you able to present it to him? Do you ever take commissions? I am finding it quite hard to find any 9th doctor memorabilia, especially being in the states. That and I just adore Mr. Eccleston as an actor in general.
Chuchkit's avatar
how long did you make this? this must have taken at least a year! it's brilliant! <3

Over two and a half years to complete it was a labour of love in more ways than one

Oh my lord. That is simply amazing. When looking at the close up I thought it had been a higher count, but 14 does indeed do it justice. That's a massive project. Kudos.

I was originally going to do this on 16ct but I had a huge piece of 14ct aida so I decided to stitch it on instead. Thanks very, much for your kind comments
