I know it's off topic from knitting, but I need to brag a little bit here. I stitched this piece, finally finishing it in April of 2010. I was just going to leave it hanging on the wall, but my friends talked me into entering it in the Richmond County fair. Whoo-hoo! It took first place! I didn't think it was all that special, but I heard the regional EGA president saw it and even she was impressed.
Fabulous work! Having done samples for stores and worked in a store, I can fully appreciate your work and know the joys of a dark linen. It is amazing how many shades of a few colors go in to a piece like this to give depth to the water, sky and ship. Congratulations Sir, your ribbon is most deserved and you should toot your horn!
you should brag ALOT!!!!! as a fellow cross stitcher you have created a masterpiece. and with all the darl too. must have been tricky, but definately well worth it. no wonder it took first place. good job :thumbup:
