Big HD!!!

Rune Gypsy is finished!!! I put the last stitch on it last night. I'm so happy with it... it's such a beautiful design. When I first started it, I never thought it was going to turn out so close to the artwork itself.
Everyone at home are so in awe... they keep telling me it looks almost like a painting.
It took me about 7 months to complete (I started it on October of last year). But I didn't touch for about 2 months at the beginning of this year. So it actually took me about 5 months.

Rune Gypsy by Stephanie Roberts

Stitched on 22ct Evenweave (2 over 1)


Check out my messy back. At first I was worried of how bad it looked. But who cares It will be framed and no one will ever see it...except you lucky guys.

Now that I've finished a HAED I will definitely be starting a new one soon. :D

It turned out gorgeous! I had no doubts about that, but it's amazing.
And you stitched it so quickly. I think it would be a moreyeardesign for me.
I hope you'll enjoy it for a long time.
