Kevin Sorbo in cross stitch

This great story comes from Sally in the UK and is a little different. She likes to do cross stitch,  a type of needlepoint, and decided to create one of Dylan Hunt. She kindly shared photos of her progress to date. Can’t wait until it’s done, which I hope she will also share with us!

Back in December, 2009, I charted up a picture of Captain Dylan Hunt. How did I chart it up? I used computer software called DMC Cross Stitch Pattern Designer. The charted picture is 7.14 cm wide by 10.5 cm high. It involves 48 different colours and contains full stitched.

I started stitching Dylan just after Christmas and made good progress. Just before I visited my grandparents for New Year, I came across a small mistake. I seemed to have missed a couple of stitches, so I spent nearly two hours unpicking the stitches I’d just done.

For a stitcher, unpicking can put you off continuing to stitch that day. I put needle and thread down for New Year, and worked on Dylan when I got home. I spent a couple of hours on Dylan and managed to stitch all of the area that I had to unpick before New Year.

I worked on Dylan a couple more times before I put needle and thread down again. I was afraid Dylan could have become a UFO (unfinished object) for longer than two months, but now, Dylan is out of the cupboard, and I plan to work on him every weekend to get him finished.

    As a follow cross stitch I just wanted to say that it is looking great. I know how much work it takes and yes I hate unpicking too. Can’t wait to see the finished project.
