xstitch vs Paul Robertson

September 8, 2012


This has to be the biggest project I’ve undertaken so far… and it’s still far from complete.  Hunting for pixel pictures on the interwebs I stumbled across the amazing works of Paul Robertson; the man has crazy skills with pixels! I decided that I had to turn a hand at transforming his work into a cross stitch of grand proportions and got to stitching!  Once complete this will measure about 60cmx60cm.

I couldn’t even begin to guess at how many hours I’ve put into this so far, or how many times my hand has turned into a claw through too much stitching, or how many needles I’ve lost in cushions!  It’s certainly a labour of love… I’ll update this as it progresses…

First girl complete!  I’m breaking the rules of completing the dark colours first!!

Getting some colours in on the bottom half is spurring my stitching hand on!

      thank you very much! Patience is certainly a pre-requisite but the end result will be worth it! The man is a pixel god for sure, already tingling to do more of his stuff in cross stitch!
