Titanic in Southampton

Everyone who knows me, knows that I am a Titanic fan. Maybe even a fanatic…..lol
I have been looking for years for the right cross stitching pattern. I have come across a few but there was always something I didn’t like about the pattern. To small, ship to far away, no action, no color, or some other reason.
A few months ago I came across a site that had 2 Titanic patterns. One of those patterns was Titanic in Southampton. I fell in love with it. I actually have a postcard with this same photo on it. This pattern is going to take a long time to do, but I am up for the challenge.
I found the pattern on Celtic Rose Needlecraft’s site. You can click on their name to go to the pattern and site.  I have to give a shout out to Jacquie! She was so helpful. I had questions about the pattern before ordering it, wanting to make sure it was the one for me and she answered all of them and to make it even better, when I emailed her she always replied within 10-15 minutes of me sending my email. That ladies and gents is true customer support!
There are 15 pages of just the pattern itself, 18 pages (included instructions and floss guide) in total.
Because I am adding this to my WIP list, I will be working on one page at a time. I hope to be done with it by April 15th, 2014.
We are hoping to frame it with postcards in different mediums of the same photo going around it.
Below is the first part that I have finished and a photo of what the finished project should look like.
What do you think? Do you have something that you are passionate about?
