V - Disney Alphabet Cross Stitch

My "V" choice was part letter necessity and part like of the character. I wasn't a Wreck-It-Ralph fan overall, but the movie had it's strong points and she was one of them. I can relate to the outcast that gets ostracized by the popular crowd and never seems to do anything right (a bit too much actually).

From a stitching point of view, I had to flip her ponytail to the other side because of Phillip's name being too low. I also really wanted to change the "V" because it looks weird to me, but I did decide to go ahead and keep it like it was charted because I've changed enough (please forgive me CloudsFactory!). But at least I didn't have to move her down a row (which I thought I was going to have to do). Now, the final row should be easy because it is exactly as charted!

"V" is for Vanellope

I've been following your progress on this piece though not always had time to comment. Well done for sticking to schedule, it's bee so much fun to watch this one grow. I'm really looking forward to seeing how they all look together at the big reveal! I wouldn't worry about the designers, I would imagine they are pretty pleased at how this is turning out too!

I saw wreck-it ralph for the first time the other week and it was ok, I liked the story idea and the characters although I think it lacked something. Great stitching though, I too am looking forward to the big reveal!

I haven't seen Wreck-it Ralph either, but it's great that you included some characters from the newer Disney movies too!
