The usual high quality standard of cross stitchery that we come to expect from the mighty Beelisty.
And quality subject matter, I might add!

Awesome as always.

When did you start Bea, about how long did it take?

She was the only good thing in the Star Wars Holiday Special. She will be missed

Too Cool!
Very apt timing on Bea. A very awesome tribute to a totally rocking, ground breaking lady.
And of course Simon AND Garfunkel....can't have one without the other !

Super awesome work as always Smiley

At James : She was ONE of the better things in the special.....(Mark Hamil's makeup job was truly the best thing evar  Wink )
