Well, after 6 months and 53,400+ stitches the SSP (super secret project) is complete and has been gifted. The SSP was a wedding gift for my sister. My parent's took a picture of the location with my sister and her fiancée that I then gave to a friend that is a genius with Photoshop. She took my sister and fiancée out of the picture, filled in the gaps and viola I had a picture to send to The Stitching Studio in Canada. They took the picture below and created a 200 by 267 stitches pattern that included blended stitches.
I then took the pattern and stitched the design on 28 count evenweave. I started December 1, 2012 and finished in the early hours May 26, 2013.
Here is the final product.
I had it framed and gave it to them at their rehearsal dinner. They loved it. :)
Now back to working on the million of WIP that I have kept locked in the closet all this time...or maybe I'll start something new. :D
Happy Stitching All!!!
