God Speed!! Updated 24th October 2015

by jocellogirl » Thu Sep 06, 2012 10:26 am

I claimed this chart as a reward for spending so much money on the HAED site (thanks rcperryls!!) and subsequently saw a hanging of this one and the accompanying 'Tha Accolade' in the English Heritage shop at Whitby Abbey while we were on holiday. That did it and I had to start it at the earliest opportunity. So as soon and I'd finished Sunday Cricket and the June Mr Man I got this one started.
Here's the full picture
Image
and here's where I'm at so far
Image
I'm stitching 2 over 1 on 18 count Antique White Aida, as I wanted a bigger finish to make it onto a hanging, like a tapestry. There's already detail of the stone carving appearing, but there's a heck of a lot of black on page 2 :shock: .

That will make a brilliant wall hanging, as you say it'll be like one of those gorgeous tapestries :applesauce:

Beautiful :applesauce: :applesauce: The detail in the stone work is already so amazing.
I can see why you would like a color change, but hope you'll be back to this one in not too long a time.

Wow, this is going to be absolutely stunning. I've always liked this painting and it'll be great to see it in stitch form.

It looks like a huge project, but you've made so much progress already. I envy your speed!
