Everyone has an opinion when it comes to the Twilight series, but the only thing I can think of is relief. I am finally done with this cross stitch! I've been working on and off for 2 months (mostly off), and I finally put the last stitch in last night.

It is 8x12", 25 colors, and 24,320 stitches. I love doing little stitches, but there is no greater feeling than finishing a large project.

If you click this first picture and zoom, you'll be able to see all of the individual stitches.





and anyone who has seen my flickr stream knows that I have an insane love for the backs of cross stitches because they look so spiffy, so I have to share this picture. Tongue

Oh, and I almost forgot - if you want to do it yourself, I have the pattern uploaded here and the patterns for the rest of the books are here

Holy Fishpaste, Batman, this is awesome!!!!!  I absolutely love it!!!  I have only ever done one cross stitch in my life and, 2 years later, I still haven't finished it, so this is very impressive.

Totally hitting "This Rocks!" because it totally does.   Grin

You are to be applauded!! That is an amazing feat of patience, especially with so much black. Your stitching is nigh on perfect, and you back is so neat. I have great respect for people who can keep the back neat.

W-O-W! I can't even find the words to say what I am feeling for your poor little fingers. I tried cross stitch about 6 times in my life and never ever finished a thing because it drives me batty and here you go and do this beautiful thing wow.

I hit this rocks too because man does it.
