This is my second cross stitch piece.  The stitching is finished, but I have no idea what I'm going to do with it now.  Mayby frame it?

It took 66 colors and 10,000+ stitches.  I've been working on it for more than a month, here and there.

It's about 5 inches by 5 inches.

This was fun!  I can see why people enjoy cross stitch.

Thanks for looking!

You did excellent work. Was this a kit? It's such a beautiful pattern, and I'd love to work it myself.

Thanks for the kind words, peeps!

I didn't use a kit.  I googled "lamp post narnia" and someone's .gif popped up, which I then turned into a pattern using Jennifer's Awesome Cross Stitch generator:  http://jxs.info/.

I got it, Jamie!  You're too clever by half, you are!

Anyway, I took one look at the thumbnail and said, "Tumness' lampost, cool!"  Great job, and definitely frame it!
