I got the hand done this weekend, over one :) and also finished in the part between the skirt and her shawl. Hope to get a little more done yet tonight. I can't wait to get to the beading, then it will really look neat!! But for now, I guess I should be happy with just getting the x-stitching done.
Below is my framed picture of the poem Warning. The colors are wild and individually you'd never put them all together, but somehow they work for this design. The purples and red bring out all of the colors in the actual x-stitch. I hope my sister will love it, it's for her 60th birthday in June!! Can't wait to give it to her.
