Really overly proud of this piece, since I'm fairly new to needlework.  It's the biggest project I've taken on, and definitely the most personal. And I adore how it turned out Smiley  Pictures!

close-up of details on tentacles and signature, the colours are more true in this one.

and the picture that started this, drawn by my boyfriend

I tried my best to stay true to the original...but sometimes lines led to nowhere and had to be omitted.
thanks for looking Smiley
