Vote Knope!  
So, I totally failed to post these pics of my finished Leslie Knope cross stitch on Friday, but here I am now. I am still suffering from cultural over stimulus (otherwise known as the curse of "too many awesome things") and I don't think I'm going to calm down any time soon seeing as I'm already bouncing off the walls from the excitement of seeing the Avengers tomorrow. I am beyond giddy.

But I'll try to keep calm long enough to share Leslie with the world. I can't remember right now how big the stitched design is but the frame is an A4 one to give you some context. There's just the four colours of thread and she took a little over 3 weeks to stitch. If anyone wants the pattern just let me know and I'll edit it in. There should be a Ron Swanson piece to go with it sometime soon I hope! (If my current levels of squee don't cause me to spontaneously combust!) (This post has too many exclamation points!!!11!!!eleventy!!)

So here she is! (!!!)

vote knope 1

I tried putting her in 3 different frames, and I still haven't decided which one looks best yet.

vote knope 6

And here's a handy slideshow of her progression from pattern to finished. (Or you can just check out the flickr album or look back through this project's tag.)

Edited to add pattern - As always, feel free to do with this as you will, but credit or (even better) a link back here would be much appreciated. Click to embiggen!

OMG if you do anything with Ron Swanson, you will be my Interetz Hero, srsly. *_*

Thanks! The Swanson pattern is complete, I just have to stitch the damn thing! I knew you'd never forgive me if I didn't stitch him too!!! :)

x stitch pattern
Hi, I really like your Leslie Knope "Vote Knope" pattern and I was wondering whether it would be okay to use the pattern on your blog to cross stitch myself a version?

Re: x stitch pattern
Of course! I love seeing other people stitch my patterns. I don't know why the flickr links above have gone a bit wonky but the pattern is here if they're not working properly. Hope you enjoy stitching it.
