This took a looong time to complete. I saw the design in a cross stitch magazine and liked the look of it. I didn't realise just how long it was going to take. It eventually went awol for a few years, then when we moved house I found it at the back of a cupboard and made myself finish it. It does look striking, but I haven't decided what to do with it yet. It would make a nice cushion, but I don't want the kids ruining it!
