Here it is, all 27 inches.
It is an exquisite Jan Stawasz design.
Tatted with #12 DMC Perle.
In about 30 minutes, I ironed it, photographed it, measured and packaged it up and stored it on a shelf to await the fast approaching family festivities. I could not wait to get it out if my sight! Strange that after about 20 weeks, I feel only relief to be finally done with it. Off the shuttle, it is entirely out of mind.
What must be acknowledged is that this piece would never have been completed without the constantly uplifting support of the many tatters who left encouraging comnents on this blog.
I cannot thank you enough! You know who you are. And I do hope you realize just how necessary your thoughts, wishes and often very amusing words were to the completion of the Monster.
Big grateful hugs to all of you. : )
