obviously a lot of people have left comments on your project, but i have to leave mine too! i also enjoy hand stitching and applique, and so i can honestly say, this is amazing!! the time and care and effort alone are unbelievable!! this is truly beautiful and i hope the original author has a chance to read my comment! crafts like this are so underappreciated (not on this website of course, but by the world at large)
Am pleased to be able to get you to do the evaluation! Thanks for sharing!
