Donald is really beginning to pop! I was originally very happy with the pencil grid marker, but the more I work on it, it's fading away to nothing. And I was afraid I wouldn't be able to wash it away! I've had to re-draw the lines. When I move to the new section, I might try the pen. It's a much darker area (except for Donald's hand) so it might hide the marks better if it doesn't wash well. I've rearranged it on a different set of stretcher bars to better reach the bottom of the project.

This was a project I bought off of Ebay years and years ago from a seller who created them from software. I won't name the creator, but, the further I go, the more disappointed I am. I am too far in the project to quit it, but the color matching is horrible...Donald is pink for heaven's sake! I began to run out of thread after the first section. The aida cloth is terrible! I have NEVER in my whole life put a hole in material, but I've done it on this one! I've temporarily patched it, I just hope when I get to that area to stitch, I can fix it so it's not visible! If you click on any of the pictures, it will take you to the picture link and I don't know if you can see it or not on the full size pic, but the hole is between Mickey and Goofy, about five inches up.

I'll just keep on till it's finished! It's what I do!
