Transcendence: Third Post - Pages 19 & 20

I promised a post on Transcendence and here it is.  Isn't he looking so lovely?  I'm so glad I'm working on this chart.  Sometimes when I'm done for the night I'll just drape it on my legs and stare at it.  Okay, maybe I'm just a bit strange.

This upcoming Monday is a holiday in the States so I hope to be able to finish the two pages by then, but we'll see.  After that, I think I'm going to have to lock him in a safe that I can't get into.  Pages 19-21 were my goal for him this year.  I have lots of other things I need/want to get done by the end of the year including some Christmas gifts.  However, he looks so good I'm sure I'll have a terrible time resisting the urge to work on him.

  1. The colors are so insanely beautiful, and you're working so FAST! You may need to lock him in a vault to keep me from "borrowing" him. Still waiting for my fabric and it's driving me nutty!

  2. Oh Mini Transcendence is on my wish list and like you I don't want to do the background, I look forward to seeing your progress on this! :)

  3. Wow, it's breathtaking =)
    Excellent stitching =)

    1. Thank you for your comments. Also, thank you for being my very first commenter on the previous post for this guy. It was very exciting getting that first post.

  4. Hi, I'm passing on this comment from Jo - she couldn't post because of the word verification and she asked me to comment for her. :)

    Hi, I've come over from Rahenna's blog to see the black Transcendence! Then I saw Darth Vader who I've just stitched this year, then I saw the mention of chain mail, which I've made in the past - a thing to hang from my leather jacket like Alice Cooper on the Poison cover and a glove. So I just had to follow!
    Check out my blog too - www.serendipitousstitching.blogspot.com
    I like seeing other people's HAEDs but the backgrounds always put me off stitching one.

    1. Thanks for quite a few things Rahenna and Jo:

      Rahenna, thanks for posting for your friend and letting me know they were having difficulties.
      Jo, thanks for having difficulties. I didn't know my blog required the word vierification which drives me nuts, so I've disabled it. I'm also glad that I'm not the only one to have some fun tastes, like Alice Cooper and Chain Maille on one hand, follow by Darth Vader on the other. I'll see if I can get together some of my chain maille pictures and finally make a post on those.
