Good for you!! It's beautiful. You had to go some to beat those others there in Utah. I used to live there and know how many of them do cross-stitching. You have a right to be so proud! I just don't see well enough any more to do such fine work, so I am really jealous! ;^)

Excellent! And I'll bet the back looks just as perfect as the front. Mine always looks like a road map with thread issues. Congratulations!!

meezersfive--I had to laugh at your comment about the back. My cross stitching was forbidden territory for peeking! It was just too embarrassing.

Beautiful, I see you like samplers, as do I. Maybe tomorrow I'll post some of my work too.
You look so happy in the picture, and I'm happy for you. I think needlework is so theraputic, good for the soul. Congratulations !!!! I always tell my hubby, if he mentions the cost of framing,that it's so much cheaper then a trip to the psychiatrist LOL

Beautiful needlework! I grew up in Utah and know you had lots of competition. It seems like most everyone is involved in crafts. Great work!
