I love it!

If you don't mind me asking, how long did it take to make it?

i totally adore your work :) hope you dont mind a couple of quick questions...do stitch all one way (finish off each row and start again at the beginning)every time or do you stitch back and fourth (as you would normally with crochet)
also im curious what size you usually make them (average stitch count)i'd love to make something like this and i love crochet but ive never done picture crochet before...i did try a small pattern piece to see if i could do it but it turned out looking messy and not very sharp (maybe it was because of the small size?)
any tips for a beginner picture blanketeer (and massive fan of sixties music) :)
