Sure; I could clean it up and do that. I've tried to find the original source or artist with no luck. I tried contacting the person that used the image in an article and got no reply. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Ok finished that middle bottom border, and worked a strip to the left edge to show how much is left. There's a lot of empty space in the tool palate, so that will go quickly, but there's also a lot of solid black cross stitch and borders so that takes forever. No way to estimate how much time is left on this; I'll just post as I finish pages so I feel the progress!

Good luck with the solid black...do you have something fun to watch while you are working on it?

This is amazing! I've always wanted to try blackwork. Need to find a creative use for it like you did. Hmmmmmm.
