The Sepia Doctor – DWXS3 finished

dwxs3_02

A couple of months ago I introduced you to one of my Doctor Who cross stitch projects here.

dwxs3_01This is what I had in February. In the meantime I almost completed the face and there were only a couple of stitches left. Alas I forgot to take a picture. During the last two weeks or so my embroidery needle turned red hot plotting the background on the left. Actually, I broke my old trusty needle. This is a kit from Designer Cross Stitch, stitched on 14 ct Aida with DMC threads. Sufficient amounts mostly, although I came three stitches short on one of the colours and had to use some nameless thread from my stash.

One more Tenth Doctor kit left to finish. 🙂

I have also added two new gallery pages of my cross stitch projects as well as my David Tennant and Tenth Doctor stuff. You’ll find the gallery widget at the end of the right sidebar.

Introducing DWXS3

Now that my cross stitch project DWXS5 has been completed, gently hand washed and is currently drying (more soon) it’s time to fill one of the vacant virtual project baskets again.

For this, I have chosen another Doctor Who cross stitch project which I call DWXS3. This time I’m stitching a sepia portrait of the tenth Doctor, a kit from Designer Cross Stitch which came with a piece of 14 ct Aida. It has been lying around half finished for quite a while now, so I thought it a good choice.

Yes, I know. My blog’s a little bit on the Doctor-y side these days, but that’s also what I’m dealing with in real life currently – doctors. They’re still working on a proper diagnosis but on the brighter side, it doesn’t seem like anything life-threatening. You’re not getting rid of me. 😀

OK, here’s what I stitched so far –
