The Kiss


Here is "The Kiss" by Mirabilia, finally finished on April 1, 2017, after over 15 years as a UFO:


It is stitched on the called for fabric, 32ct Apple Blossom linen, with the called for fibers, DMC floss and Kreinik metallic braid, and beads.

Here are some detail shots:







And here it is, finally, fully, finished.  I picked it up from the framer a couple of weeks ago:


 I am very much enjoying having this on the wall after all this time.

I have an ancient Egyptian cross stitch that I've been working on for ten years. It's about six feet long and I'm convinced it will never be finished.

This is absolutely beautiful.
