wow so gorgeous, I love it. I too have issues with transfer of the pattern to the fabric, but I just stole one of my husbands drafting pencils with the hard lead and it kept a super fine point and washed out, its a mechanical pencil and cost about 8 bucks but its awesome!

Absolutely stunning.  You're an inspiration, along with Jenny--I can only dream of my needlework turning out so beautifully!  (i think i'd better get serious about mastering that stupid stem stitch, I seem to be addicted to the split stitch for comfort's sake.)

I'm so glad you posted this! The picture I took at the fair doesn't do it justice. When I get back to Austin, I'll put this one on the site.

It's just gorgeous. Cheesy

Thank you for your comments.

Re: light boxes: do a search on Google for "craft light box". Prices vary greatly -- around $30.00 to $100.00.

What beautiful Folk Art. I could see that being a treasure on Antiques Roadshow in some distant future! (haha I just revealed my extreme dorkiness)

Gosh, thank you so much! It's not dorky at all. It seems that really old handmade items (quilts, embroidered samplers, etc.) that are SIGNED and DATED and have some kind of documentation with them (provenance is what I think they call it) are worth a lot of money. So all you crafters out there, remember to sign and date your work! Don't leave your great great grandchildren guessing who stitched that beautiful item and the year it was created.
