Family Tree Cross Stitch

Okay folks.....here it is finally!! I finished the cross-stitch I started LAST MARCH. I had started keeping track of how many hours it was taking me to do it.....but I lost the paper I was doing it on. Oh well......maybe next time.
As you can tell....it hasn't been ironed or mounted, etc. I went to the frame store yesterday and ordered two very expensive mats. The inner mat will be the dark red and the outer mat will be the dark green. I think it's going to be very elegant looking. Hubby is going to make the frame because it's going to be a very odd size (19"x19") I'll post pictures again when it's all all all finished.
