Finished this one last night
Not as much detail as some of the others, so didn't take me as long

They are really beautiful Yoda! I'd better not get one of these books, I'm afraid I would do nothing else! :whistle:

hilda, yup, maybe you should give one a try.

MM thanks for the nice comments

Mischief, I spend hours doing it. It certainly does give one a huge sense of satisfaction. Though in a strange way a bit of frustration too! I am currently doing a snake that covers 2 pages. Last night, after about 1 1/2 hours I looked at the work I had done, and thought to myself " is this all that I have done in that time?????" :doh:
