Futurama Cross Stitch - Progress

Here is another progress post
as I've finished Amy and Leela and started Zoidberg

I'm almost half way!

I had put this down for quite some time but 
have picked it up again and do some
more in front of the TV when I'm
in the mood.

After Zoidberg, it's Bender, The Professor and Hermes
on the other side of Fry.

Another Futurama Cross Stitch WIP

So I'm still making my Futurama Cross Stitch,
the one with all the characters
but I've had a request for just Zoidberg
on a larger scale so I made up a pattern
and started this Work In Progress

This is where I am after 2 days of very little stitching
The pattern calls for over 4000 stitches
and will be roughly 11" x 12.5"
as a finished piece.

I really enjoyed the process of making the pattern
and have a strong desire to create more patterns
and even sell them to other cross stitchers
once I've tested them.

Futurama Cross Stitch

Anyone who knows me
knows that I love the TV show

And I've always had an interest in Cross Stitching
I just never really got into it
until I stumbled upon This Etsy Store
I followed along to their blog Wee Little Stitches
and fell in love with their patterns.

And it was just my luck that they had a Futurama pattern
and even better luck that it was FREE!

I started with Fry as he was in the centre
and he is also my fave character

I'm also using a beige/cream Aida in 11 count 
and Semco thread. I chose to use 11 count Aida
as I wanted it to be a bit bigger
and easier on my wrists
