I'm ashamed to say this piece took me well over a year to complete...
The pattern is from Jan Eaton's 'A Creative Guide to Cross Stitch Embroidery' (isbn:1853681229)

Having borrowed the book from my local library I copied down the OUTLINE onto ordinary paper (I really don't understand past-me) and had to work out the number of stitches per letter.
Luckily, about a year later my Nanny found a stack of cross-stitching books in a charity shop and grabbed them for me- in that pile was the book necessary for this bit of work.
so, finally here it is...



Especially proud of my M, hey look I'm in the pic too! ^_^


C+C welcome!

The strong colors on the black background just take this to the next level.  Great job!
