This is my first completed needlepoint.  My husband bought it and swore HE was going to make it, but he never did.  I ended up making it.  I'm going to give this to my brother for his birthday.  I hope he appreciated the ENORMOUS amount of time it took to make.

Thanks.  It measures about 10" by 14".  I'd say it took me about 30 hours.  I started it in August and worked on and off until last week.  My husband did help with the framing and he did 3 stitches, just so he could say he helped.  That rat! I knew he wasn't going to do it.

I don't think I'll be doing any more of these for a long time.  I think I'm all stitched out for now.

This is AWESOME. Definitely encourages me to pick up the cross stitch I abandoned a few weeks ago!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I have no idea.  It was on clearance at AC MOORE during the summer. 

Thanks for the kind words everyone!

I just did a search and found it online.  It's made by Janlynn.  Here's the link and the sample picure from the website.  You can see the colors more accurately in this picture.  As you can see, I eliminated the purple and gold on the sides.
