Here are some of the many project that have been done that started out as charts here on Advanced Cross Stitch. Enjoy the work of stitchers around the world, here in the completed projects gallery.
This is incredible. It was one of my favorite charts ever, because it’s wild. Wild animals are always a favorite of mine but add that it was a client image taken on a vacation. This is a memory for Gail. That’s an added bonus for me too. It’s been a complete joy to see this […]
Here, I’m just going to share the email that brought this finish to me. Hi, Jennifer, I wanted to send a photo of the completed project. It took Aunt Jean 13 months to complete, the longest of any other project she’s ever done. She says, “It was truly a labor of love and it is the […]
Here we go… it’s finish day. Wilma Dayrit has finished this custom chart. It’s her daughter coming in from a flight at the airport. You can’t really tell that from image, but the image was very light hearted and so much love being on display. It was important to Wilma that we get her whole […]
Oh my gosh such a dramatic finish to show you today. This is a chart that I created April 2020, so this brilliant piece was done in less than 2 years. I have kids and such running around and think that is incredible for an active family. Fien is extremely talented. This is amazing work. […]
Jane stitched this beautiful puppy as a gift for her family. What an amazing talent to share. I didn’t know Jane was nervous about this piece at all. She seems confident in what we had done, but here is what she says about stitching this piece. Good morning Jennifer from the UK I hope you […]

Here is Easy Turtle stitched on a black tee shirt. The neck was stitched slightly wrong, so it’s not the chart. Two extra rows were added to the stitching making it sort of look funny. The black in the chart was not stitched in this because the shirt is black. Waste canvas was used to […]
Family crests are one of my favorite types of charts. I know they will be treasured family possessions, so seeing them become stitched is amazing. This is one of those great family crests. This was stitched by Anne Sheperd. If you would like a custom chart. You can get information about submitting your artwork.
The war hog artwork by Joe Shawcross. I created this chart in 2014, so it’s been awhile. These projects take a long time to complete. Today though, is the day that we can reveal the stitched version. The amazing stitcher Jan Sietsema was so nervous about starting out. She had never done a project this […]
If you read every post in this column, you’ll know that I say the same thing in each one. It’s my favorite day when I get to see a completed project. The posts are months apart, so it’s no joke. Each one happens on my new favorite day. This wonderful stitching is from Jamie Butler. […]
I say this every time, but it’s so true. Getting a finish from one of my charts makes my day and makes my week, this one is a free chart which made today so special because it’s out of the blue. I don’t know when some of my custom charts will be stitched and finished. […]
This isn’t Samroey’s first Advanced Cross Stitch piece. She already finished her beautiful grand daughter. The beauty in this family is overwhelming, don’t you think? Here is her grandson though, and her most recent finish. She’s so brilliant and adds fast to that. This would have taken me twice as long. Maybe it’s because I […]
There are times I get to make charts that are so personal. This is one of those cases. The original image was quite hard to work with, but it worked out and after 7 edits. This is the results. Debra is a brilliant stitcher and added some silver stitches in the snow at the bottom. […]
This is a second chart in this gallery for Rosemary. She’s a very talented and fast stitcher. This brilliant stitching is from a chart I did in November 2019. I changed out the sky to one a little bluer but simplified it as well. We used a limited quantity of colors, trying to focus the […]
There is nothing I love more than seeing some charts that I created come to completion. It truly improves my day when I see these wonderful projects come all the way full circle. This is one of those projects that is beyond my expectation of results. The hardest accomplishment in creating cross stitch charts is […]

Then last, the completed Kira. Isn’t she beautiful… both the dog and the stitching. What a wonderful job here. I hope […]
This special pup turned out great. We designed this chart on the small side and with limited colors. So it could be a fairly quick project, but still show some of the details and customizations of her son’s lovely dog. It turned out brilliant as well. Renee has proven a great stitcher.
You really can’t get better. This is the stitching of Katie Stuthers and it turned out absolutely perfect. What talented stitchers find their way to me. What a thrill it is to be able to help people with these great charts. This is her dog Xena. It was created as a custom chart. It’s a […]

I love making custom charts. I really do. It’s my favorite because they are so personal and everyone is so different. It’s a peak into the unseen. You know what is better though? It’s the days when you get to see one of those custom charts stitched and turned out beautiful. Well today is that […]
This is a chart that I actually charted for myself. My husband is a forester, so I stitched this to go on his wall with his diplomas. There is a pretty major error in the stitching versus the chart. You will be able to find it. It’s my stitching not the chart. You can stitch […]
This is the brilliant stitching of Jenna Mol. You might not believe this, but I actually changed the head of the man on the horse. The original image had this same man with a cowboy hat on. We used an image of him looking over his shoulder to add the head to that image. The changed […]
The amazing Lisa Weber created this stitching of her son and fiance for a gift. I think it turned out just amazing.

You won’t believe it, but this is Erika Mason’s first cross stitch project and I do believe she’s now hooked on the hobby. This is an image that wasn’t the easiest to create into a custom chart. The colors are very similar from the background to the skin tone of the family, so it took […]
