Princess Bride #1

Welcome to the three-weekly SAL post where I'm tackling my cross stitch and embroidery UFOs one by one.  Last time I showed you that I'd finished my Hardanger project, so it was time for a new one.

I pulled this out of the drawer by the sofa.  It's the start of a Pixel People cross stitch bought from Wee Little Stitchesof the characters from the Princess Bride.  It's Mr CA's favourite film.  I bought the pattern at the same time as I bought one of Wesley and Buttercup which I stitched up and gave him for our anniversary.  He was so underwhelmed I didn't know if I'd bother with this one, but I'd started it so I decided to get it done.

This is where I'd left off.


And here is where I am now:


I think that's pretty good going!

I'm sewing along as part of a SAL, you can go and see what the other participants have been up to here:

Impressive progress! I long ago decided that I wouldn't embroider 'for' other people, but only to please myself. That way, it doesn't matter if they aren't as delighted with the end result as I am!

Looking great wendy. Wee little stitches charts are fab. I stitched the Big Bang theory a while back. My hubby always seems a bit underwhelmed by my stitching and usually says 'oh another dragon'!

Mr CA has good taste. There are many lines in that film that have entered our vocabulary!

Love that film and also love the Wee little stitches designs. I've done Firefly and Fellowship of the ring so far.

Great progress on your Princess Bride. Looking forward to seeing more :)
