How did you keep your sanity?
And...How long did it take to finish this?

This was my first BAP (Big Ass Project)

Took me two and a bit years to complete on and off.

Christopher Eccleston even saw it for himself and cited it as "fantastic" to me.

You have lots more patience than I do. If a project takes more than maybe two weeks, it gets shoved to the side for God knows how long...Like the TARDIS I started (but the pattern-thing was lost, so can't really finish...)

As Aesop fable once said, "slow but steady, wins the race".

Doing BAPs are hard but the results can be rewarding, especially when so many people have commented and given me so much love on Deviant Art that I'm touched by the kindness of strangers on a worldwide basis.

One of these days I want to get/make a pattern of Serenity from Firefly (if you don't know it). Or maybe a picture of the entire cast. Lots of ideas, no patience to make them

You are welcome - it's an amazing piece :)

ooOOoo does this mean that you finished Sarah Jane Smith? I really liked the WIP you have here but didn't include it as it was incomplete.

I have finished the majority of Elizabeth Sladden but I just need to finish the white background.

I hope to finish Davros by the end of summer so I can upload them both.

Awesome - I don't envy you the filling in of the background though! I hate that bit.

I can't wait to see them both finished :D

Thank you for your kind comments.

It was a labour of love - in more ways than I imagined, partly due to Christopher's reaction when he saw it.

I'm currently doing Davros, creator of the Daleks, albeit a smaller design but just as complicated.

Awesome=D Have you done the background too or is the aida colored like that?
Reply
:iconsalford1:
salford1 Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2012
Thanks for your question

All of it was stitched on white 14ct aida with at least 10cm/4" border so it wouldn't fray. I work from left to right, doing one page at a time.

That is absolutely fantastic. I honestly thought at first it was a close-up of a painting. Being severely uncoordinated when it comes to crafts, I worship at the feat of anyone who could cross-stitch something that intricate. And you caught Nine so perfectly.
