This cross stitch took me 4 months to complete - it's about the size of a medium-sized poster!

If you're interested, I purchased the pattern from this Etsy seller: http://www.etsy.com/shop/magpienight
Beware, though, because it's a pretty tough pattern!

Completed project:

I hope to frame it at some point, but for now I'm just enjoying its completion!
