So Yubaba is done, framed and hanging on a wall! Thought I'd just update the post with making-of and final pictures

Source picture



Half-way done



Cut out and ready to be framed



Aaaand, finally, framed!



I'm not totally crazy about the frame, but I got it from a thrift store and it was the only one big enough Tongue



----Old post-----

So this is my cross stitched Yubaba, with my glasses next to her for scale.



Took me maybe 6 months (I kinda lost track, honestly) - pattern made with macstitch, done on 18 count aida, a labour of love and moderate (who am I kidding moderate...) obsession.

All that remains is to somehow join the pieces (i may have stepped on her while half done - mornings and me don't get along so well) and mount her on black fabric, then she's donesies! Cheesy

Thanks guys! Cheesy
Not entirely sure what i'll do with her once she's done - i think i'll probably just try to frame her and hang her on a wall to terrify all and sundry
