WOW!! I've been following your progress on this. It's so great to see the finished product. It looks wonderful. You've actually motivated me to pull out my large cross-stitch project that's been hiding in my craft room, 3/4 finished, and finally get it done. Wonderful job!

Thanks for all the nice comments.

DreamChild556 -- I'm happy you brought out your piece to finish it.
Belladune -- I have lots of needles!!! Most of the common colours were always threaded -- I use one of those plastic  storage boxes that have different sections. It does speed up stitching when you have more then one needle.

why hadn't I thought of that?  I've got a huge amount of needles, but never thought to thread more then one of them for a project.... LOL   learn something new everyday!

This is unbelievably beautiful! Can I have it? I love the color and the shading. Do you mind my asking how long this took you? I can't even imagine the amount of perseverance you must have to complete something this involved.
