WIP Wednesday - "The Kudos Strike Back!"

It's Wednesday... and that means it is time for another edition of WIP Wednesday from yours truly! 

I have really appreciated all the encouragement I have gotten from the Atlassian Community on my previous posts.  It has helped fuel my creative juices and I am excited for Wednesday to come around every week!  :)  Thank you all again!

I have continued to use my trello board to track my progress.  The only configuration update I have made to the board since last week is adding a card limit to my "Doing" column.  I should only be cross-stitching one badge at a time, so I put a limit of "2" on that column.  I don't know if it is possible to turn my "Doing" header card into something else so it does not count as a card... That will be something to investigate this week.

This week I will be sharing two badges: the "Ocean Devotion" Kudos Badge and the "Problem Solver" Kudos Badge!  The Ocean Devotion badge has been done for a couple of weeks now but I forgot to share it ( @Monique vdB - this ones for you!  :) )

I love the way this one turned out!  I wasn't sure how the starfish's face would turn out but I was pleasantly surprised by the end result!

I am currently working on the "Problem Solver" kudos badge...  It is a pretty simple design so I should have had this done a couple of days ago BUT I had to completely scrap my first attempt at making it.  When I finished the first one, I realized that the circle that outlined the image was pretty wonky...  It was more of a oval than a circle.  Because I couldn't "un-see" the oval, I had to redo the cross-stitch pattern.  It took me an embarrassing long time to figure out how to get a "perfect" circle shape.  The good news is that I now know how to make a pretty decent circle for the rest of my patterns going forward.  :P

That is all I have for this week!  See yall next Wednesday!  :)

My WIP is a painting of my nephew - he's looking a little like Chucky but there's always an ugly stage 😉

Thank you for sharing your WIP Wednesday update! Your cross-stitch badges look fantastic, especially the "Ocean Devotion" badge. It's great to see your progress and dedication. Looking forward to your next update. Keep up the good work!

@Ditte Simard this is an amazing series. I think these will need to be displayed at the Community Booth during Team '24. Maybe we need to create an art installation of Community inspired works. 

@Monique vdB I really hope he only LOOKS like Chucky...

@Mark Cruth your image is not coming through for me, would love to see the limited edition work somehow!
