Ok so it took me about 2 years to finish this, obviously not continuously but I finished it a little while ago. 

The pictures not very good but haven't got it framed yet and the fabric seems to mess my camera up and make it go streaky.



Face detail


Cloak detail

I love the colours on this one and they really are even brighter in actual life lol

After alot of hours, unpicking and using extremely annoying metallic thread I have finished. I got this for Christmas two years ago and enjoyed doing all the bright colours as many cross stitch patterns are pretty boring. And its big too, biggest I have done so far 50cm x 37cm on 28 count Quaker Cloth.

Oh and I have another one the same size too which I have started, but may take longer as I have been doing so many other things too at the moment!

I like it alot. I can understand it taking you two years to finish. I'm trying to work on one and I'll probably finish in 5 years if I'm lucky.
