2" project = tiny pillow?

Pyro looks awesome framed. And I'm glad you got the River of Destiny finalized, too. :nod

That Mr. Afternoon T just *killed* me. I'm a tea snob so that one is very easily my favorite. :3

Wow, that's awesome! And what a frame - where did you find it? How did you have to plan for framing?

Mum got it properly framed for me, she had an alphabet framed at the same time. She had to talk them into the octagonal frame as it was a bit harder than a standard rectange. When the guy realised we really wanted an octagon he gave in and made it. I'm really really happy with how it turned out :) Just got it back today

That is absolutely wonderful. I'm a huge P'terry fan so this made my day. :D

When I was first starting to scroll down the image to see the whole thing I thought I was about to see the starship Enterprise from Star Trek, but then I'm like, "What the hell?" That's weird, but pretty cool too. :nod

Update time!

I confess I have not been stitching much lately. Mostly because I have discovered the world of crochet and these little guys have been taking up my time:

My rug is nearly finished :) All 60 squares are made, now I just need to tidy up loose ends and sew them all together. In the mean time I store it as a rug snake:

Cross stitch is not entirely abandoned however, work on Black Mages holiday is continuing slowly. I have also been making a few patterns which may soon be revealed, and a new project is in the thread-aquisition phase. In the mean time I have been mass producing sandlewood moth bags having been given a portion of a wool stash that was partially mothed.
