Cross stitching is definitely not my craft but I wanted to make something Razorback related for my husband's Arkansas Razorback crazed aunt and uncle as a Christmas present.  I started this about a month and a half ago and finished a week before Christmas.  I was going to frame it at first but decided at the last minute to turn it into a pillow.  I just did a half stitch with all six strands.  I have no idea how many stitches there are but I thought I would never finish this thing!  I also made the pattern in Photoshop.

Thanks for looking!

Woooooow!! i think it's so incredibly nice of you to have made this. I know how long it took and that it got frusterating, but you're such a sweet person to have taken the time and not given up!!! <3

GO HOGS GO!  That's alot of stitches!  Looks great.  A girl from Arkansas like me can really appreciate something as difficult as doing a piece like that for a team that's not even yours!
