Almost Done Stitching the Raven

I really wanted to get The Raven done this past week, but things don’t always go as planned. I am really close though! The words are done, the Raven is done, the little “fence” type part is done. All that is left to stitch is one more star and the border!

Almost Done Stitching The Raven!

I’m actually considering leaving the border off and opting for some sort of fancy matting when I have it framed.
