A new wip

I am starting a piece that means alot to me and I need your help to keep motivation. (it is HUGE... 360 stitches W x 244 stitches H solid cross stitches.)

I will be doing smaller christmas ornaments so I do not lose my motivation. (NO I AM NOT DOING ANOTHER PIECE ON BLACK.... need a break from black so unfortunately that means I have to stitch all that black. Now you know the reason for needing smaller pieces to do while doing this one.)

I had written to Erik Hollander for permission to create a pattern and stitch one of his beautiful paintings. (minus the words) I HAVE ERIK HOLLANDER'S PERMISSION!!!!

I am not permitted to share the pattern or sell the piece. (like I am going to want sell it! NOT!!!!!)
My hopes is to have this beautiful piece displayed in my home.
Send the pattern along with a picture of my finished piece to Erik Hollander.
Maybe if we are lucky he will want to put the pattern on the market.
****Please leave a message if you are interested in some day being able to stitch this piece.... I will pass on the messages when I forward the pattern and picture to Erik Hollander.

That's going to be a wonderful project you will be working on. The colors are going to be amazing. I think that is good you will be doing the black stitches instead of working on black fabric. Your eyes do need a rest although the Wizard came out awesome. I will have absolutely no problem keeping you motivated to do this WIP.

That is going to be beautiful when you get it all done...Wow....I would rather stitch the black stitches than stitch on black material.

I would love to have this pattern when he releases it or whatever he has to do to put it on the market.

Take care & Happy Stitching

That is going to be breath taking! It will be a true labor of love. I would also rather do black stitches than stitch on black. I'm glad you have permission to make it work.

Dawn, how exciting to be able to do this project. It's will truely be memorable for you. And I agree stitching the black will be much easier than stitching it on black. Can't wait to see your progress on it.
