BIONDINA is done!!!! Happy Dance!!

Woohoo!! Can't believe she's done! I'm so happy with how she turned out:)
Here are the stats:
Golden Kite pattern: Biondina (detail)
I stitched 25 pages of this pattern.
She is stitched on 25 count fabric, 2 threads, tent stitch.
This is the first project I've completed in tent stitch. I'm still not sure my ultimate verdict on tent stitch, as compared to full cross stitch. It's definitely faster, especially for background stitching. The coverage is not quite as good when stitching the darker colors, but after washing and ironing it looks pretty good. I did get bogged down sometimes in high confetti areas, it was a bit harder to keep track than on my usual 18 count. But doable! I would use tent again. 

Thanks for looking!
