I finished this the other day, my present from Jo for Christmas, it only took 22 hours but that backstitch was a killer but it was worth it.

I live in Rochdale, UK and I've cross stitched for the past 21+ years. I did take 10 years off stitching but I'm back to stitching again and I was a home stitcher for Immediate Media, who publish most of the cross stitch mags.
Keep an eye open in the Cross Stitch Crazy magazine as you will see my name in print under the key...lol
