Xanadu is finished! Hurray! It turned out pretty, although it is really shiny. I don't know how I will decide to finish it, frame or box or what. No hurry there. For now it goes in the "finished" pile.
This small piece (5" square) was difficult to stitch for 2 reasons: One, I used different threads than called for and some were hard to handle. Two, the instructions were from an old issue of Needle Pointers and were less than stellar.
But now it is done & I will go on to something else. I think I'll concentrate on finishing up a small cross stitch to give my Mom for her birthday in May. Will post about it eventually.
