New Year's SAL - Sign in

One of the Stitch alongs I joined for 2015 is Stacy's New Year's SAL that focuses on finishing or making progress on BAPs (Big Ass Projects - smaller side has to be at least 300 stitches). My proejct for this will be a new start as I have nothing of the size on the go; the same one I'm also using for A New Stitchy Start, so I will partly copy my post from over there.

My new start will be 'Dark Force' from Tilton Crafts. It's 300 stitches wide and 459 stitches high and I will stitch it on 22ct, 2 over 1 (because it would turn out to small for my tastes on 28ct and the black coverage of 1 over 1 on 25ct isn't good enough, also for my taste - also, this way I can ease into stitching on smaller counts better, I hope). I might also try griding, but probably on a per page basis.

I won this chart in a contest on deviantArt this summer (or rather, I won a free pattern and got to choose), and I really love it - I'm a big fan of Star Wars, and this design (as well as all artwork of Sanda) is stunning. There also is a partner piece, 'Master', starring Yoda and mostly whites/light greys, which I have as well. Sadly, both patterns are no longer sold on Tilton Craft's webpage, so I'm glad I got both of them before they were taken off.

I only ordered the supplies after christmas, but I do hope that enough of them will have arrived once I get home on Sunday so I can start this right away this month.

That is a stunning pattern. Looking forward to seeing it grow. I am also starting my first project of this type (a HAED) and am still gridding.
