I got this kit about 6 years ago, and just now finished it. I'm so proud of myself, that I had to post it.



Couching with with the gold thread around the main image was a nightmare (I am NEVER doing that again), as was cording around the outside (in red), but I think it came out okay.

It still needs to be ironed and framed, but its done! and it sorta-kinda matches what my room is going to look like by the end of the summer.

Thanks!
I think I'm going to put it in a plain black frame or a dark red stained one. I can't decide.

Ha!  I have the exact same kit as well.  I have gotten as far as sorting out and separating the thread.  Since I discovered subversive cross stitch and sublime stitching though, I want to finish it because it makes me feel bad (well, maybe halfway bad) to buy new stuff when I have scads of stuff to occupy me already.  Anyway.

So that's what it looks like!  Swell job, musicaddict.  And thanks for the heads up on the couching.
