Can you believe it? Two finishes in two days! It's very exciting.
Okay, I have a ton of pics... well 6. I just took pictures and continued on. It took less time to stitch the remainder of the project than I thought.
First picture. This is the original coloring of the bear:
I then went on to put in all the color that didn't have the Kreinick filament or braid, nor had any back stitching:
And finally the GOLD, and silver...
Finally the wording that makes it make sense:
And finally the black!

Right before I started working on this post I texted the finished picture to my mother and sister. My sister's response made me giggle, "I think if your room was messy with piles of gold we'd all let it slide." I wish!
So now I'm not sure what I'm going to do. I have a few projects I want to finish before we go on a framing run which will probably be early next year. I want to do the piece that's similar to this one No Late Knight Snacking, as well as SK Magical Arrival, a bead weaving project, Colombina, Lost Dragon Sampler, and Tales of Wonder. I highly doubt I'll be able to get all of these done. But it will be fun finding out which ones I do get done.
