Knowing how much my bestie, @roler, loves eels, the idea popped into my head to make her a cross stitched, holiday themed eel. When I came across this image, it screamed MAKE THIS FOR ROLER! It took me nearly five hours to create the chart. I had a few issues, but finally got it worked out.
I love how this turned out. I just wish I had the talent and skills to create art like the drawing I used on my own. But my talents lie with yarn and thread, and I’m ok with that
Here it is before framing
Here it is in the frame.
And because mine is blurry, roler was kind enough to send me another photo of it in the frame
I am happy with this project. And roler is, too! I told her to go ahead and open as soon as it arrived because I wanted her to enjoy it for the entire holiday season. (Also because I am the most impatient person I know, and waiting for someone to see their gift is so hard!)
Moray Christmas, everyone!
