La scapigliata is actually an artwork done by Leonardo Da Vinci around 1500. It was also featured in the movie Ever After (1998) which was one of my favorite movies. When I found this pattern in a British Cross Stitch magazine I knew that I had to do it. And this year I vow that I will finish it. 2012 is the year!
Here is the first picture of her, from January 2009:
Then the update from September 2009:
And this is now in December 2011:
(pardon the wrinkles and the mark from the hoop, she's still in process)
So there actually isn't much more to go. I will update once she is done.
I plan on framing this work and displaying it in our living room.
