I cross stitched this lion for my father for Father's Day. My maiden name is Lyon, so it was very fitting to make him.



I didn't have any black aida cloth on hand large enough to use for this piece, so I had to stitch on all of the black background. I have a rainbow giraffe pattern I'd like to try next, but I think I'll learn how to dye the cloth black for that one!

This piece is 28,836 stitches, is roughly 11x10 inches, and took about 250 hours to finish stitching. I finished this just in time to show him a picture, but not soon enough for it to arrive in time for Father's Day. He's already seen it, and he's super excited to see it in person and get it framed.

Thank you, everyone! I just got off the phone with my dad. He is super excited to receive this. He made the photo his phone background and has been bragging about it. Smiley
