    i'm really pleased with the shading on the panels
    i used three shades of blue and then also blended strands to get the shading right.

    Step 10

    this is pretty much the true blue of my tardis
    i find it quite hard to photograph blues.

    all in all i'm really happy with how this came out
    if i was being really picky i'd say the fact the windows/panels are square not rectangular is bugging me but to keep the other proportions right they had to be this way.
    i think i need to take a cross stitch break now!
    my eyes are tired and my hands are tired
    but i am so pleased with this!
