It seems like I've been coming to Craftster for ever but I've never actually started a thread!!  I've added my voice here and there but only sparingly. 

So, here goes....

I just finished this cross stitch this evening.  I'm actually making this for myself and not giving it away!!  I've stitched this several times and always given it away!!  It only took me a few days to complete and I'm looking forward to getting to the framing store as it's going on my wall.  I started it late one night thinking I was using black thread but it is in fact very dark blue.  Oh well....  I'll probably go very classic black frame with plain white matt but if anyone has any suggestions I'd love to hear them!!

Anyway, here she is.....Audrey Hepburn.  Sorry about the crappy lighting....it's dark and I can't be bothered to wait until morning!  Plus my kids will be up and make this near impossible!!

Where did you get this pattern?  Audrey Hepburn is hands down my number one greatest inspiration in life...I love this so hard.

Thanks so much!!  She really was a wonderful woman!!  And just so beautiful inside and out.

The pattern was one that I made myself.

I love it! I was intending to stencil that one for my husband. There is a stencil site with the same picture - one of the favourite views of Audrey. If any one wants to pm me I can either find you the link or email the picture.

Really?  I made this myself from a picture I have of her.  I shall have to pm you and get the link.  Making a stencil of a pic is quite easy though so I'm not surprised there's one out there.
