The other day, I finally finished this cross-stitch portrait of my grandparents. It was taken from a portrait photo taken of them in May 1943. I did it on 22 hardanger canvas w/ a 39 color palette. The finished product is 10,500 stitches, and now I've got it all framed up to give them tomorrow. They are both still alive-- she is 88 and he is almost 97.
(actual size is about 4.5 inches by 4.5 inches.)
