It only took 11 years.


70,620 stitches and 11 years later I have finally finished one of my most anticipated projects. I loved the process and I love the finished stitch. I’m sure that John is somewhere having a small panic attack if he reads these next words…… I can’t wait to choose the perfect enormous frame for it. No glass, no mat board – just stretched properly and a beautiful wood frame.


OK – back to paperwork, then I’m tossing the WIP pile again to find the next thing to finish up.

    That’s incredible! Those deep, bold colors–it has an ancient, dignified look, like an Oriental rug pattern does. I’m wondering about the finished dimensions? It appears to be pretty big–like, place-of-honor-over-your-fireplace large.

    (By the way, at 11 years in the making, yours is still not as old at my longest WIP…15 and counting…but I doubt that now-out-of-date dress will turn out anywhere near as pretty when I finally get to it!)
