"You have no power over me!" Finished: Labyrinth cross stitch

Hi friends!  Long time no see!  I am off work today for Memorial Day and have a few extra minutes to actually sit and blog a bit!  WOW!  So I'm popping in to show you this completed cross stitch that I've been working on here and there...a Labyrinth cross stitch.

I love this movie and all the great characters. This Wee Little Stitches pattern has all of them. David Bowie is so fantastic and the puppetry is great.  It's a wonderful fantasy--they just don't make movies like this anymore. You may remember from a previous post that I'm trying very hard to work through my stash and work with materials I already have on hand. I purchased this pattern over a year ago and finally getting around to stitching it up.  The fabric is 14-count aida in oatmeal that I had on hand as well.  When finished stitching everything, the lighter colors were blending in with the fabric so I decided to do a little backstitching around some of those areas.  I'm glad I did because you can see it so much better...especially Ambrosius the dog. 

Ambrosius and Sir Didymus
Sarah, Toby and Jareth, the Goblin King
The Babe with the Power in his cute striped pajamas
Hoggle and Ludo
Fun comparison of Jareth.  They even did his eye make-up!
So another completed piece in the books. I have a couple more weelittlestitches patterns that I'd like to do.  I'm stitching when I can.  I even joined in on a Craftster swap!  I haven't done one of those in years, so I'm very excited about it!

P.S. I think the pattern would be even better with the little worm.  ; )  Maybe I should buy this pattern.

This piece is so great, I love Labyrinth! I wanted to be just like Sarah when I was young, dress like her, have her hair, the whole nine, she's lovely. I think the back stitching around the lighter shapes was a great idea, he pops much better that way, good eye!

I love seeing your stitches!

I'm excited about the new Craftster swap, too, partner!
