So, I totally failed to post these pics of my finished Leslie Knope cross stitch on Friday, but here I am now. I am still suffering from cultural over stimulus (otherwise known as the curse of "too many awesome things") and I don't think I'm going to calm down any time soon seeing as I'm already bouncing off the walls from the excitement of seeing the Avengers tomorrow. I am beyond giddy.

But I'll try to keep calm long enough to share Leslie with the world. I can't remember right now how big the stitched design is but the frame is an A4 one to give you some context. There's just the four colours of thread and she took a little over 3 weeks to stitch. If anyone wants the pattern just let me know and I'll edit it in. There should be a Ron Swanson piece to go with it sometime soon I hope! (If my current levels of squee don't cause me to spontaneously combust!) (This post has too many exclamation points!!!11!!!eleventy!!)

So here she is! (!!!)

I tried putting her in 3 different frames, and I still haven't decided which one looks best yet.

And here's a handy slideshow of her progression from pattern to finished. (Or you can just check out the flickr album or look back through this project's tag.)

Edited to add pattern - As always, feel free to do with this as you will, but credit or (even better) a link back here would be much appreciated. Click to embiggen!

Seriously, this is an absolutely impressive cross stitch! And it's Leslie Knope! So awesome! Unspeakably awesome.

In fact, I was so impressed by this cross stitch that I created the Dreamwidth account so that I could tell you as much, and also so I could ask very nicely whether you'd please share the pattern. I'd be totally thrilled to give it a try myself.

Either way, thx. :)

PS: I like the red frame best.

Gah, that is so awesome!!!!!! :DD I really like it in the blue and black frames too, btw.

OMG if you do anything with Ron Swanson, you will be my Interetz Hero, srsly. *_*

Thanks! The Swanson pattern is complete, I just have to stitch the damn thing! I knew you'd never forgive me if I didn't stitch him too!!! :)
