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
