Well this took several months to complete. Mainly because I put it down and didn't touch it for a LONG time. Not the best, but I'm proud of it!




Now I just need to find a suitable frame, I was thinking an oval embroidery hoop........

This is AWESOME!

If you have a Hobby Lobby nearby, spring for a nice leather-look or woven grass frame.  If you go to their website (google it), they have a coupon each week, and it's often for 40 percent off any regular priced item. You can get great frames for under $20!

This is a really neat project, definitely not your Granny's cross stitch.  Smiley

I love personal swaps! I knit and make jewelry mostly, but do a few other crafts as well. PM me. =)

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