Finland won ice hockey world championship first time for 16 years and there was a huge party in Helsinki. Where I do NOT live. So what did I do when everyone was partying? I sat on my sofa, watched some Stargate and finished stitching this piece.
Luckily I am not that much into the sports anyway so I think I can manage
Again, Goldie as portrayed by great master Don Rosa. I have always loved how he portrayed Goldie... As a strong woman and not overly kind and innocent one... Oh! That reminds me! The title is a quote from Hearts of the Yukon. Nearly at the end of the series Goldie is described as a "innocent woman" and some random duck and London voice their doubts
I should have pressed this one for real before taking the photo... Now it is just washed and all crumbled. Sorry.
- 14 count white aida
- 29 x 26 cm
- 161 x 148 stitches (~23 800)
- roughly 35 colors including silver (now that was a terrible thread to work with...!)
- time: about 5 months (I stitched when watching TV and the time taken was pretty much equal to that it takes to complete Stargate SG-1 rewatch
Pattern is by me but I probably won't post it because it is... kind of directional. If you are interested in stitching and/or fixing it or something, let me know. I'd be happy to give to you the material to work with
I am relatively happy with how this turned out. A more experienced and skilled pattern maker could have done a lot more with 23 800 stitches, but this still is a better version of 1st attempt [link]
and I like the cartoonish feeling I managed to keep with this one.
- Goldie: great master Don Rosa's drawing from The Phoenix of White Agony Creek/The Argonaut of White Agony Creek (suom. Klondiken keisari). Obviously I can't say the page number because it depends of the book you are looking at but at the middle of that series you can find her watching straight at you with an ugly guy who has a face of the pig (suom. Petkunterä)
- Background: A front page of Hearts of the Yukon great master Don Rosa has drawn to a German Disney publisher
My next work will be a cottage IF I can make the pattern work. I tried to make my bf do the pixel art (not pattern, he was strict about it. Boys make pixel art, not x-stitch patterns
) but he found the work too tedious and gave up.
