A Cross-Stitch Finish

I'm glad to say that I finally finished my fairy tales cross-stitch project (PAKO 235.345), I think I started this at least a year ago, probably longer. 
As you can see, I haven't ironed and framed it yet. I do like the finished project, but I didn't enjoy stitching this that much. There were lots of colors in it, and there were only little bits of every color, so you had to keep switching colors all the time.
For my next project I chose something quite the opposite, i.e. a project where I don't have to switch colors very often. I'll  tell you more about that project in a later post. 
But for now here's my fairy tales project, and like I said, I quite like the finished project.

My birthday present for Jessica is finished! (although I'm still looking for a frame for it).
If you want to try something like this for yourself,  then there are several (free) programs that you can use, for example MyPhotoStitch (which I have used for this project) or Pic2Pat.
