I have this as a wip. I had to stop stitching for a while due to carpal tunnel, but someday I will get back to it.

I love how detailed this is ... you must have a lot of patience (not to mention good eyesight) to stitch on black aida !

OMGOSH! I have this one. I started it, but then the fiance wanted me to do a wolf one for him too. It's nice to see the end product. It's so colorful.

Hope mine turns out as nice :)

Hehe, someone commented on MY Frederick the Literate cross stitch and left me a link to yours! lol Lovely job! :) I never really know what to do with my cross stitch when I finish them either :)

Oh, by the way, if you're interested I found a free program that will make a counted cross stitch pattern out of any photo you load into it. Here: [link]

Thank you so much for the fav on this :hug: The speed may have more to do with the fact that I watch way to much TV, as that's when I usually worked on it.

It's really quite beautiful. Are you going to use it for a wall hanging or pillow cover? It's almost too nice to "use" somewhere in the house!

I don't know, I love doing them, but I haven't quite figured out what to do with them when I'm finished, though I will probably frame this one and enter it in the fall fair.

That would look very cool. If you enter it, I hope you win! In fact, I'll bet that you'll win!
