This piece was a wedding gift for a longtime friend and her new husband. They're both originally from India, and I wanted to send something handmade and appropriate for the occasion. Though it was a bit late (the wedding was in October, and this piece arrived yesterday!), they really loved it. The photos were taken before I washed, ironed, and framed it, so please forgive the wrinkles.

All in all, I think it took 6-7 months total to complete, and I was working on it quite a lot during that time. I have a better idea now of how long these things take (this was my first major cross-stitch project), and learned a lot in the process!
It was a kit project, and you can find the kit for sale here.
