The Nine Horses - 38.5 hours

by brae  

I finished the stitching portion of The Nine Horses tapestry, for a total of 38.5 hours of work.  :]  I still need to trim the fabric, turn the edges and do the final finishing.  It's currently 4" x 3.5", and the measurements won't change much from that with the edge finishing.

Half cross-stitch, 32ct Jobelan.  Design based on a vintage original (see this post).

Beautiful work Brae! They do make me think of llamas or giraffes though with those long necks ;-)

Lovely! You have more patience than I; I’d have set fire to it after hour 8.5. You do such fine work.
