Fractal Finished

The fractal is finished!  I've been working on this off & on for a couple of years.  I adapted this design from a cross stitch pattern by Cross Stitch Collectibles.  I think it was a freebie, but I don't remember for sure :-)
I cut the colors from 79 to 46 by eliminating colors that were nearly indistinguishable from one another and by substituting an overdye for a bunch of the rust shades.  I also perked it up with a bunch of metallics.
I chopped this off at the bottom making it 8.5" long instead of 11".  The bottom 3" just looked kind of messy to me and I like it the way it turned out.
Now to get it framed!

I like this! Your changes really perked it up, especially the bits of metal thread. Can't wait to see what it looks like framed and how it fits into your collection of framed stitching. Is there a theme?

Liz, this is beautiful and subtle. Your patience in working it must have been limitless - I can't imagine 46 colors in such a close range! Thanks for sharing it.

Good to see this one finished and it looks wonderful! I know you spent a lot of time converting this to make it easier to stitch. And I think the shorter size is just perfect.
