Westie and black cat - cross stitching

Here it is finished and framed - I am so pleased with the way it turned out. This is going in the room I craft in which has a yellow and blue theme (uhm maybe prompted by working on this for three years!). This piece had to take a back seat whilst I was studying for my MBA but is now a little reminder of Angus the Westie, here he is below. He passed away in 2007 but had lived to be nearly 16 years old.
I had this picture painted  in 2004 by the lady who also does my framing-not a portrait as such! but is a representation of me and Angus - it is called "Dreaming with Angus".

This looks fabulous you are so clever and you must be very pleased with it, it will last forever and what a wonderful memory of your little dog!! I love Westies!
I've had a go at cross stitch, my only go! between the age of 5 and 7, it took that long to do.. just patterns, a 'television' cover (I mean??? what is that!?!) my mum still has it...in the attic!
