At an epic 18"x18" and 250 x 260 stitches (from wall to wall) this is my largest piece to date.
Ganesha, also known by a horde of other names, is the Hindu god of new beginnings, obstacles and the removal of obstacles. He is one of the gods you worship regardless of which sect you belong to. And he's the one to pray to first before praying to the other gods.
After looking for ages for any cross stitch of Hindu gods I found him towards the end of last year. He was one of about 3 designs around at the time. Now PINN has released most of the very major gods of the pantheon... and I'm left wondering if I want a matched set!
Anyway he's definitely a long term project. And by long term I mean about 3 years. Anything longer than that is too long for me to plan for!
