First Love - 90 x 60 cm

This was a journey that started blank on 2nd Sep 2014, making the grade on 10 Dec 2016 - a cool 2 year 3 months. This is my 1st 'full stitch' picture, and it was large, comprising of 36 colors. Many a times i have doubted if i could ever finish it.

Now i have wet the finished picture in water, soaking and washing away the color indicator dye, together with the dust which have accumulated over the years. And it is ready for framing - the final product is shown on the last picture below.

A new, more colorful and larger piece has been taken out. And am ready to start everything over again - filling in the tiny colored boxes with cross stitches. It will be another 3-4 years before i have anything to show you here :)
