Leopard in Repose by KezzaLN Leopard in Repose by KezzaLN
(Kit by Dimensions Gold Collection) Please click on it to see in detail (standard image looks a bit blurry to me)

I timed this one meticulously, as with my fav.me/d7gxbg5 but won't be timing anymore projects. Mainly because I was only doing this on days off, or when I could spend hours at a time on it, rather than pick it up whenever, which would have meant being completed sooner :/ This is the biggest solid stitching project I've done :)

Anyway, here are the details:

Stitch Count: 34,496 (didn't count out, it's solid stitching so - stitches each direction x by each other)
209hrs 20mins on cross stitch
10hrs 5mins on backstitch

219hrs 25mins in total.

As for framing, it will be in a black and gold frame with a cream mount :) (will update the photo to the framed version once i have said frame and have laced and mounted etc)

I'm 95% sure it's a jaguar and not a leopard :D Awesome work!

@_@ This is so pretty! Oh my gosh, I can't imagine working 219 & 1/2 hours on anything but this end result is certainly worth it. It's just so lovely. Great job!

Thank you :) I like that it has a lot of half stitch in different numbers of strands - really adds to the texture and also speeds it up a lot too ;)

Do it! - It's lovely to see it come together :)

Aah, good to know - I do like those half-stitches. ;)

This is definitely going in (a long) queue of things-to-do! :) :giggle:

Haha I have 68 cross stitch projects in total :P (inc 3 WIP's) but 2 or 3 may come out as i haven't kitted up yet and feeling more 'meh' about them.

Either way it's hard to pick the next project sometimes :P

How many WIP's have you got?

68!? :shocked: :D

I have currently three WIPs (one big work, two smaller) and maybe some 15 kits and patterns already bought...
'The stash' of course keeps getting bigger and bigger...

I love stitching, but dammit, why does it have to be so slow? :giggle: :P

Two of my wip's are medium, one medium-large (mainly focusing on the latter) but next fri i'm off to stay with relatives for a few days so will start a new big one (10"x16") :)

And I agree, wish I could show more progress for my time to non stitchers - they just don't understand, haha

Ah okay, sounds great! Good luck with those! :)

My biggest work to this day is one that's 14.1' x 27.8'... 90% of it stitched with two colors too, so it only took some three years. :D

Really love stitching those big works, but it's kinda depressing to think about that completing one may take years! :XD:

Thank you :D It's my biggest piece so far but doubt I'll go much bigger :P (and I wash my hands very regularly when stitching) haha x

I do that too! :D I keep hand sanitizer next to my work station so every time I feel I need that extra bit of clean there it is!

Haha I do this as well, although it does mean I am guilty of being too lazy to get up and wash them properly half the time :P
