This is amazing work! How long did it take you? What are you going to do with it

I started right after Christmas.  I figure in terms of hours of actual stitching about 30 to 35.   The colors choices took a lot of time as well. 

I put it down several times as I was doing a lot of knitting and the roses made me more mental than usual. I kept telling myself if I could just finish the ####ing roses the rest would be easy, and yes, by comparison, the skull was a breeze! 

I laundered it last night and blocked it to dry in an old towel.  It shrunk very slightly (as I knew it would), and all the gaps between the threads are now gone! I will post it again when I get it framed. Then I'll give it to my boss as a thank you for putting up with me!

Thanks again everyone for your kind words.  And do not be intimidated....anyone who knows me will tell you I'm NOT a patient person, just a damned persistent one.

If I can do this, so can you!
