I started stitching this yesterday and this is how far I got with it (there's around 1,100 stitches done)
I'm really excited to finally be stitching this design, I downloaded it from spritestitch.com over a year ago and I honestly never thought I'd be in the position where I have nothing holding me back from attempting a design of this size. Maybe next year I'll finally stitch Aurora's Cabin by Dimmensions!
I'm also going to be stitching some exchange pieces, my two PIF exchanges and a wedding anniversary sampler for my parents in the evenings alongside stitching this as I will probably need a break or two from the solid colours! It's my parent's 25th anniversary at the end of March and I think it'd be nice to surprise them with a sampler. By stitching this Mario design during the day on my days off I hope to fool them into thinking that I'm not stitching them anything!
Should have some more progress to show soon but until then happy stitching!!
