I attached the strap a little while ago and then danced round the living with Millie who wasn't very impressed but that prob has something to do with my waking her up from her nap and bouncing round the room :)
Close up of the strap, that's a vintage Swarovski on the end and yes there's one the other end as well. Unfortunately they were out of the budget for the entire strap but they do look good as an accent
and lastly the fringe, that for me was the most boring bit

Issue 77 - Jill Oxton's Cross Stitch & Bead weaving
I'm sorry the pics are'nt that good but it's very overcast today and I at least managed to take pics during a break in the rain.
Now a couple of facts about it, it's taken me approx 2 months to complete and it's my first project in square stitch. There are 17,672 delica beads in it (yes I worked it out but the amounts needed for the sides are already listed) and it weights 115g/4oz.
I have my next big project planned and I start getting the beads for it on Wednesday until then I'm going to either work on a WIP or start one of the many kits I have.
