Last year, I got behind and missed the deadline to submit something to the Minnesota State Fair.  this year, i decided to start early, and can't believe how quickly I managed to finish.

In May 08, I took a photo of the Spoonbridge & Cherry Sculpture at the Sculpture Garden at the Walker Art Museum here in MPLS.  (Learn more about the actual sculpture here: http://collections.walkerart.org/item/object/713)

Of course, the original photo is saved on my other computer!  But here's the finished piece.




i started it about a month or so ago (oh goodness-- not sure) .  specs-- 3x5 inches, completely stitched on 22.  Palette of 70 colors.  Over 7000 stitches.

you can see a short slideshow of process shots here: http://s283.photobucket.com/albums/kk320/beelisty/?action=view&current=ba12c593.pbw

(gasp)  It's awesome!  You did a great job.  I dragged my husband to that park to see that sculpture when we were in Minneapolis for a couple days.  I never thought I'd see it rendered in needlepoint, though. Grin

Looks Great!
Can I ask a question?
How did you get the photo to be a chart with colours?
Plus, is the sculpture taller than you? If you were standing beside it I mean...
