Let the BAP begin!


Alright sports fans... today is a BIG day.  It is the day I put Stitch #1 into a BAP that I've been dying to sink my teeth into for years.  I've finally decided to let it wait no more.  Next week, I'm headed off to Kingsport TN for the EGA Regional seminar and only taking studio time so I should be able to dedicate at least three full days to this beauty.  The piece is straight-forward;  100% cross stitch, except it has about a bazillion color changes and the graph looks like confetti.  I guess that's what you get when you want to recreate an impressionist painting with needle and thread.

Here's the "AFTER" pic:

Wish me luck!


  1. WOW! That is a beauty and will be drop dead gorgeous when it's done, I can't wait to see your progress on this one.

    Kudos to you for starting this one, all those color changes, wowee!

  2. WOW! What a stunning piece! I would love to stitch this. Can you tell me where you got the pattern?
