Wow! This is amazing work. I don't know what your fill in stitch is called either but this is beyond awesome. I think I remember seeing this guy before but I'm not sure. At any rate, the stitching on this is perfection. I'd take up embroidery again if I could do something like this.  Smiley

This is a huge piece and the stitiching is excellent. I can't even imagine finishing a project of this magnitude. I love the Assyrian symbol at the top as well. I've always been interested in ancient cultures.  Your friend is lucky you were willing to put in the time and effort it obviously took designing and stitiching something like this. Nicely done.

What a special gift. The director will treasure this. I can't believe it only took you three days. Excellent design and stitching.

Cut the piece above her head so the lines are gone, then even up the sides so that from the stitching to the edge there are the same number of squares. Then backstitch around it one or two squares in and glue it to the front of a blank journal. It would make a great gift for yourself or someone else.

eep - you poor thing!

Thanks. It happens every Sept. here though. This area was hit by "Rita" in '05 and I'm a bit gun shy now. Plus, my mother is elderly and I can't take a chance of waiting for them to call an evacuation. It's always a gamble as to how early to get away.

I hope you won't be disappointed in your gift. I felt really good about it until I looked at last year's swap. So much awesome stuff! I'll do my best though, I promise.  Smiley

I've got everything collected and sitting on my kitchen table.  And my husband did look at it, look at me, and just shake his head

LOL I actually consider that a good sign.

Be careful! At least the crafting will distract you from the awful weather.

That's the great thing about crafting, it gives you something to take your mind off things. Last time this happened I ended up with three weeks to cross stitch. I spent it all making Halloween stuff.  Smiley

I live on the gulf coast so I shall spend my weekend running from a hurricane. But never fear, pardner, I'm taking my project with me.  Grin

A little acorn guy, what a great idea. Nicely done!  Smiley

Your bf bowed at your feet, right?

He'd better if he knows what's good for him. lol

Milhouse rocks! The stitching on this is perfection.

I have the supplies gathered for the "doing". Now I need to be thinking about what to do for the "finishing". (I always get ahead of myself)

Wow, I can't believe this is freehand. I find it a hoot that you decided to do an x-ray wing so as not to have to stitch the same thing twice. I kind of feel the same way about duplications. lol The feathery wing has beautiful colors and the x-ray wing emphasizes both the fragility and strength of the subject.
