I made this a few years back for my mother, who collects Dreamsicles (gosh, over ten years ago!).  She has it framed and it sits with all her cute little figurines.  It is my favorite piece of cross stitch and I was so proud of myself when I finished it!  It is intense with so many half and quarter crosses and tons of colors.  Just wanted to show it off a little -   Wink

Full shot -



A little closer -



Thanks for glancing ... and happy stitching!!

Awesome stitching! I'm always so amazed by cross stitch. I can do it, but I really don't have the patience to finish something that big. It's only right you show that off; it took a lot of work. Did you buy that pattern or make it?

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

Thanks for the comments!  It was definitely a kit ... I would have never been able to handle something like that "on my own"!

lol I couldn't make that up either, but after seeing some of the work around here, I don't know what the limits are anymore. This place blows my little mind.
