I can not believe that I finished this HUGE cross stitch piece! You guys! I am not kidding when I say she is GIANT! The cross stitch is over 2 feet (24 inches) in length.

Finished cross stitch over 2 feet long

Now that I am finished with her, I don't want to see it for a very long time. Do you do that with big projects? Once it's done, it can go away?

I don't think people really grasp how long this took me and how I wanted to call the news stations when I was finished.

Did I mention that she is giant size and that I love this poem, but mostly that she is giant size?

Hey KittyKill, that's a really BIG stitching! Did it take long? Did you notify the press?


I would have gone blind(er) had I attempted such a feat. She is gorgeous! Just like you!

I'm glad you mentioned the size because sometimes it just doesn't register when you look at a photograph. Bet you're a little sick of stitching in black, but she is beautiful.
