What are you most proud of? I began this cross stitch in 1989 and completed about 3/4 of it within a few years. Then, life got in the way and I didn't pick it up again until 2010 when I decided it was time to complete the project. This is the FIRST cross stitch I ever completed and framed.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Determine a certain number of stitches you will take each day to avoid letting decades go by before completion.

I made this same cross stitch in about the same year. I did finish it then, framed it and even got a ribbon on it at the fair. I love it, simple and it says everything I need it to say.
