This took SO much longer than I thought it would!  It about killed my hands.  I followed no pattern, just winged it.  I am very pleased with how it came out!  Sorry about the glare, I have already framed it.  Opinions?

That is great!  I love day of the dead stuff and have been working on creating my own cross-stitch patterns recently.  I just went to the store and got some graphing paper.  It is totally working out for me.

I have no patience for cross stitch personally, so have to tell you that this is super cute!  I dig the fact that you did so well with white stitches on black aida cloth... are you using all strands of floss?

Human rights are for EVERYONE.  Did you know that Aung San Suu Kyi had been released from house arrest in Burma? Many other prisoners of conscience are still being detained.  Please research this topic... Amnesty International needs your help.

Yes I used all strands on the crossstitch.  It killed my hands, but it was worth it!

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

Thanks!  Someone gave me the Pottery barn frame.  I banged it up with some nail marks and sand paper.  Then I painted it with a green wash and that's the end result.

I love it because it's not the typical Granny like needlepoint! Skulls are so cool. Day of the Dead Skulls are so much cooler! Cheesy
