This was one of my very first completed cross-stitch projects. Before I even realized why stitching from the middle of the fabric is much better than starting at the end  Undecided
Anyways, I finally came up with this solution so I could finally show off my work. Iron-on backing is my new best friend!
The Marilyn pattern came from CrossStitcher magazine, and the plaid background was my own doing.
I hope that you like!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
