"Well, here I am."  
So, nearly six months, 8,165 stitches, and 32.1 metres of 20 different colours of thread later, my Serenity cross stitch is completed.

Despite being considerably smaller than either Peter or the Enterprise, this particular Cross Stitch of Doom has somehow caused me more stress than both of them combined! But she's turned out rather beautiful and I'm quite a bit proud.

"Love keeps her in the air when she ought to fall down... tells you she's hurting before she keels."

ETA: Pattern for this cross stitch now available here.

This close up should show the stitches a little larger than life size, depending on the monitor you're viewing this from:

And this is my favourite photo of the bunch, as it's the only one that really shows up the fact that I mounted it with a few bits of tin foil on top of black card, so that from certain angles the light catches the foil and it looks like stars in the background. Handmade lens flare for the cheese factor!

More pictures to be found here, and you can look back on the various ups and (many, many) downs of my progress here.

Onwards! To the next gigantic project!

Re: pattern
Hi there! I made the pattern myself and I'd be happy to share it - it'll take me a few days to get it tidied up and presentable, but I'll post it as soon as I can and will let you know when it's up. Thanks!
