Oriental Orchids cross stitch

This is the Oriental Orchids, Dimensions kit #35176. It’s on 14 count Aida; I started it last May or June as a break from other projects on higher-count fabric. It was a secondary project until I finished the outside of the celestial dragon, and then it became my primary. I was worried about the gold thread in the background, but it wasn’t as annoying to work with as I thought it would be. The background was still annoying, though; it was randomly scattered stitches, very easy to miscount. I like this, but I’m very glad it’s finished.
