I am so proud I finally finished this!  It is a Janlynn kit that I had forever--I worked on it on and off for 10 years and now it is finally done.  This picture is "pre-framed"

Wow!  That looks amazing!  What an accomplishment.  Those big kits are always impressive to finish.  You did a great job, it's very inspiring to see one of the biggies all finished like that.

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

Thanks for all the nice comments...  I sure did figure out a lot of things while completing it--one thing I figured out is that I am NOT that patient and I doubt I will ever attempt a cross stitch project that big again.  lol
