It's nothing new or original but I'm so happy I finally finished this. It took me over a year to finish. Basically I ran out of thread and I constantly kept forgetting to buy some more. Once I got the thread I finished it in 30 minutes. I am going to iron it, frame it, and give it to my mother.
It's been a pain in my side because it was my first "back-to-cross-stitch-after-giving-it-up-when-I-was-a-little-kid" project and I made a lot of mistakes. Plus I found out metallic thread is so annoying and I left out a whole part because I needed to get some more metallic thread. It would've taken me another year just to complete it .
I've got more cross-stitch projects that I'm working on so keep an eye out for more posts from me... in the distant future !
