i haven't posted anything in awhile because i've been embroidering, but i finally finished this.  i started it back in march or something when it was still really cold out here, and then when it got warm, i totally stopped stitching on it!

The finished work is 6x4, 73 color palette, for a grand total of 11, 616 stitches!!!

i wanted to enter it in the Minnesota State Fair, but i missed the registration deadline.  Sad

here you go...

When I started, it was still unclear which one of them would end up with the nomination...but I hope you're right about having stitched the next president! Cheesy
