I made this for the FOC swap, and I just had to show it off.  not sure what happened to my partner, but I know it's been delivered, so I'm going to post it now.

this was the original picture on her wist:


block by block, I turned it into a cross stitch pattern using only MS paint.  it ended up turning into this:


I worked on it nearly everyday for hours on end over the course of 2 weeks.

whatcha think?
