Nova - yes that's it. The picture does not do the colors justice, but this does give you an idea of what it looks like. And yes, in person it is awesome. It is a big project, but really worth it. Very fun to do because it has different stitches, but they are all explained quite clearly and the book is set up so it's really easy to work.

if using DMC wash after you're finish,(if using silk I don't know never used silks yet.)...wring out in between towels with the threads not touching and press dry....with a little steam...don't iron...press ...sit on fabric and lift,sit on fabric and lift...at least that was how I was taught to do it....and by the time you finish the Sistene you WILL need to wash ....lol

It's looking great, Tami. I'm really jealous, I've got no corner to stitch in here yet and I'm really craving doing some stitching. I miss it soooooooo much, and my poor little dragon is just crying out to be finished! Grrrrrrrrr. I really need a chair and a light, that's the least I need, god forbid I think about such luxuries as a floor stand!!!! Evil or Very Mad
