I got a lot of this stitched over the weekend. So I was happy to finally finish this morning. I really like the way it turned out. I stitched it on 40 ct. linen which I'm definately going to use more often. It not only make the piece much smaller and therefore uses less thread and makes framing slightly less crippling, but it also makes the piece look more delicate. I've also learned that carried threads don't show up quite so much too. Anyway, here's the not so great picture. It's a little washed out. The colors are very vibrant in real life.
