Holy cow, I finished this sucker! Three years, 165 colors, 35,000 stitches. By far, the most hardcore craft I have ever tackled. Who wants the pattern?!! Just kidding - I know this is insane.

Iron Maiden is my favorite band on the planet! Will you be my best friend and allow me to stare at this epicness regularly?

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

Oooooh.

Is there any chance that you have more pictures of it (and are willing to share them?)
I'd love to see detail shots Smiley

That is the best project I've stumbled across in quite some time!

Sure - I'll try taking some more/better pictures. My camera isn't great, but I'll see what I can come up with.
