It's finally done!
The frame is 50cmx70cm, and is by far the largest cross stitch piece I have done. So far.
The beetle is a Goliath Beetle and can be found in most tropical forests of Africa. From Wikipedia: "Goliath beetles measure from 60–110 millimetres (2.4–4.3 in) for males and 50–80 millimetres (2.0–3.1 in) for females."
I got the inspiration from this lovely blog: studiorolfsdotter.wordpress.co… the image can be found here: studiorolfsdotter.wordpress.co…
