Coastal View Cross Stitch

YES! Finally! After more than a year! Cheerleader 

I fell in love with this pattern from Dimensions Gold. 
I made some changes from the original - using DMC threads and beads instead of french knots for the flowers in the bushes. 
Size is 21 x 17 inches.

I don't think I'll tackle huge project like this in the near future. hahaha.
This is for the "Finish the WIP Contest" hosted by stitchingpirates

Is the "Palazzo" on the little "Hotel Palazzo" sign from Kefka Palazzo's name ? I know you said this wasn't video game related but the I knew I recognized that name from somewhere and your picture with the Lunafreya and Noctis dolls seemed like maybe Final Fantasy. This is a fantastic piece, by the way, it must be a wonderful to look at now that you have it completed knowing all the work that went in.

I think the "Palazzo" here is just the Italian word for Palace. This was based on a painting of an Italian coastal town which was converted by Dimension's Gold into a cross stitch pattern. I just added the Luna and Noct dolls because this background resembles the town of Altissia (FFXV) which was based on Venice.

Beautiful embroidery, this must have taken so much patience. I'm curious how you did the thinnest lines since they don't seem to be part of the stitching pattern.
ShiroiKoumori's avatar
The thin lines are made from back stitches and straight stitches. They are actually part of the pattern. They are placed to overlap the xs and emphasize corners, details, etc.

Oh I see, thanks for explaining. Don't the stand out too much over the surface?
ShiroiKoumori's avatar
It doesn't since backstitching just uses one strand of thread.
DanielaIvanova's avatar
Oh I see, makes sense. Thanks so much for clarifying <3

You're welcome. If you have more questions regarding cross stitch or embroidery, I'm happy to help.

Thanks! Have you been doing it long?
ShiroiKoumori's avatar
Yes. I started to learn the craft since I was 6 years old, but it is only within these few years that I started to make big pieces.

Wow that's incredible! I thought it was a painting at first

Thanks! It really looks like a painting since it was based on one.
