This is a cross stitch I did of Van Gogh's Starry Night that I made from a kit I ordered.  It is about 15 x 11 in. and took me 11 months to complete.

Thanks for looking.

That is fantastic!  Since cross stitch is my first love, I can truly appreciate all your time and effort.  I have had inclinations to do a copy of a master, but haven't found the courage.  You did and it's just great!

Fabulous rendition of my favourite Van Gogh painting!  I wish I had that kind of stitching patience Smiley

Good for you for being so patient and brave!  I bow to your diligence.  This is one of my favorite art pieces, but the scope of the work just scares the heck out of me!

Well done!  Hang it proudly!
