Just Like The Moonraker

Here's a project I started in the first lockdown and completed yesterday (working on it in meetings, mostly).

It's the first edition cover of Moonraker, my favourite Bond novel. I used an online pattern creator on an image I found through Google, and variegated floss to make it more interesting. (The black thread is slightly sparkly and looks really good.)

When we can go non-essential shopping again I'll get it framed.

Cross stitch version of a book cover showing red and yellow flames, with 'Moonraker' and 'Ian Fleming' in block capitals.
