Stitchin’ Richard gets some lovin’

Poor, poor Stitchin’ Richard!  He has been neglected so!   I blew the dust off the cross stitch bag Thursday afternoon, and I swear SR had a look of despondency about him.  I vowed to do what I could to make it up to him.  I finished off the colored portion of the page.  I’m sure I heard him rumbling in satisfaction as I put the last few stitches in!  Friday after class, I did some more stitching.  I put in just over 1,000 stitches of the background.  I’m happy with the progress.  Maybe I can finish the page in time for my second RAnniversary!

In two days, I did around 1,300 stitches.  Here’s a photo update in case you are interested:

Hopefully tomorrow will be another good stitching day.     🙂

    You are having a stitchin’ good time, it looks like. Good job! Love those pics of him, by the way. Call it his Russian sea captain look. 😀

      Those pictures of him are among my favorites! I was tickled to find this pattern. I love cross stitching, especially when the image is so appealing!! 😉

  2. Hi ItsJSforMe,
    Wow! Your Stitchin’ Richard image looks fabulous! I can’t wait to see your final result! Will it be made into a pillow cover that you can snuggle up to? Cheers! Grati ;->

      Thanks Grati! 🙂 I was considering a pillow, but I’m not sure I could deal with the possibility of it getting dirty, after I put all that work into it!

    As long as you don’t stitch in the mouth, he won’t be able to complain 🙂

    Glad you’re back.

      I’m looking forward to playing with stitching his mouth. Is that wrong of me? *vbg*

      Thanks, it’s good to be back. I hope to do better at posting on a regular basis. I think I need someone to give me a swift kick once in awhile. lol

    Thanks Phylly3. I love extremely detailed patterns. I was over the moon to find this one. I’m thinking of contacting the seller and begging for one of Thorin!!! *swoon*

  9. Excellent cross stitch. I wandered where he had got to after he left Spooks – good to know he’s still about – I must watch the Hobbit soon. Thanks for the post.
