74,500 stitches, 3 and a half years to complete on and off and 45 different colored threads!
Hopefully before the weekend is out I'll scan the design. It may be on the pic heavy side, I warn all of you in advance.
But all good things come in time don't they?
I don't consider it finished because...I've still got to do the black background to make the logo stand out. Once this has been done, then I'll post it up. In the meantime, there's a lot of Anchor 403 to stitch. And then my friend (or someone kind enough) to take a picture of said cross stitch with me.
Then you call all comment if that's okay?
What next? Who knows...perhaps a monster or a companion or even the 11th Doctor in sepia tones
I'm planning on making the clock turn anti-clockwise, and base it on this clock, with a picture of each Doctor in each frame. Unfortunately, I can't buy that one because it has been discontinued so if anyone knows a site that sells small frames that would also be good...
I'll post pictures here as soon as I'm finished. Though that could be a long time off, depending on if I find the frames. Anyhoo, thanks in advance!
Hello everyone, I'm a long time lurker posting for the first time. I get so much enjoyment out of this board. What an amazingly creative group of people.
Inspired by your creativity and the Christmas episodes of DW, I'm striving to make several DW themed ornaments this year and eventually make enough for a dedicated DW Christmas Tree. I've made a 3D cross stitched Tardis and am currently working on designing and cross stitching all eleven Doctors. These are the first three Doctors.
I'm not sure yet how I will finish them. They are exactly the same size as a standard matchbox so I am thinking of stitching sides to the Tardis and making them 3D.
And this is my original 3D Tardis ornament.
I´ve followed this comm for quite some time now, but wanted to wait with posting until I had created something new.
And now, I have.
Paperdolls of 11 Doctors and two surprise guests.
(Single pictures, bigger pictures, templates, tutorials and chit-chat -> this way)
Well...it's getting a bit big now to scan all of the 10 at one go, particiarly like me if you've only got an A4 scanner. But the good news is that I've only got 2 pages to stitch and then it's done, finished all 74,000 stitches, 45 colours et al.
Trouble is I have no idea what to do next. Any ideas? I do have a lot of patterns featuring now the newish monsters such as the Ood, Silurians and Smilers. I thought about doing individual Doctors as well...
I've come a long, long way since the first picture I posted way back in the summer of 2008!

I've just brought two cross stitch patterns of the Master in sepia tones too!
I wish everyone here in this forum a very happy New Year 2010!
