Adventure Time_Finn & Jake (WIP)

So I have been working on my little Adventure Time cross stitch for the past couple days.  I finished all of Finn the Human, including the whites.  I also finished the black outline for Jake, and then I started to fill him in, but I did not like the color I had chosen for him.  So I undid it, and found another color which looks great, but I don't have a lot of it, and I'm nervous that it won't be enough... Here it is:

Finn is supposed to have missing teeth, since he gnaws things and fights monsters all the time, but I really didn't like how unclear he looked, so I decided to add some back-stitching to his mouth and teeth to make it look clearer:

I think it looks much better with the back-stitching!  Now I need to finish filling out Jake and then write "MATHEMATICAL!" above.  Here are some close-up details of before and after the back-stitching:

Adventure Time_Finn & Jake

Here is an Adorable cross stitch I started.  It's Finn & Jake from Adventure Time!!!  I just LOVE that cartoon! so when I saw the cross stitch pattern, I just had to have it!  I bought it from a shop called Stitchpal on Etsy.  Here is the link to the shop:
I am stitching it on 18 count white aida using 2 strands.  They had suggested the DMC colors, but I didn't have some of them, and I decided to change a couple of them, too.  I started it on Monday March 5th.  So far, it's coming out so cute! 

This is as of Tuesday March 6th.  I did some of the black outline on Finn to start, and then started to fill out the colors of his backpack and his t-shirt.

This is as of yesterday, Wednesday March 7th.  As you can see, I have done most of Finn, except the teeth and the hat (white).  He is looking so cute!  Next I will continue the black outline for Jake the dog and then fill him in!  It is going to look ALGEBRAIC!!!

Mr. Darcy

This is the third pattern I bought from Book Pilgrim.  I have read Pride & Prejudice at least 4 times and I have seen different versions of the movie hundreds of times!  Mr. Darcy is always so hot and attractive!!!  I stitched him on 14 count aida using 3 strands.  Here is a WIP:

My arm is almost 100% better now, so I was able to work on him pretty quickly!  Here he is all finished:

He came out so beautifully!  Again, I am so happy with Book Pilgrim's designs!  I really should wash and frame Mr. Darcy, Jane Eyre and Heathcliff!  They will look spectacular!  Here again is the link to Book Pilgrim on Etsy:

Right now I am working on an "Adventure Time" pattern I found on Etsy.  I just love that show, and I am having fun doing the cross stitch.  I will have a WIP to post soon!
