Took me about 2.5 hours. Lol goodness! I'll show another picture below with some machine embroidery that is supposed to mimic hand embroidery. That one took about 10 min I think. Lol

Great job! That was my main hobby when I was younger and I have considered picking it back up.

It probably took me so long because I was watching tv the entire time. I was excited that I could actually do it though.

Because it's fun and it's nice to actually accomplish something by yourself without the help of a machine every now and then? Lol that's why I do it. :)

Yep! My mom does a lot of cross stitch and I'm always amazed at her finished work.
