I finally finished this cross stitch on July 25th (I believe). I was stitching it for a little boy named Chayce. I did this project through an organization called Love Quilts, which is an organization that makes quilts for children who are terminally ill. They place a picture and bio of a child and a theme for their quilt, and then people sign up to stitch a 13x13 inch cross stitch, and then sew them all together to make a quilt. I think this is my 3rd completed cross stitch ever, and I'm pretty sure the largest (which isn't even that large), so I'm a beginner. Please excuse the mistakes, I somehow miscounted somewhere along the way, which kinda messed me up throughout. Also, this picture was taken off the lovequilts site and I don't think it's as good as the one I took before sending (it may have gotten wrinkled in the mail, causing the dark "lines"), but it was more convenient at the moment so that's why I'm using it. If you enjoy cross stitching, or want to learn, this is a great way to get the motivation, and bless a child who is suffering. It's so much fun, and honestly, I got hooked on cross stitching after spending so much time doing this one.
