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...

The sculpture is HUGE... i'd guess that it's about 30 feet tall.... probably about 50 feet long.  my original photo was taken about 40 feet away from the actual sculpture.

i used photoshop to clean up the photo then made the pattern w/ PC Stitch, tweaking it until it was what i wanted...



Thank you all Smiley  And the weird thing is that the cherry is gone right now for a touch up-- so if you go see it, it's just a giant spoon.  i keep meaning to swing by there with a camera so i can photoshop weird stuff on the spoon, like my cats or something. Cheesy

My hubby and I had our first date at the sculpture garden too.

This is beyond awesome!  But then again all your work is beyond awesome.  The sad thing is is that I have lived in Minnesota all my life and never have seen the sculpture in person. 

you should definitely photoshop your cats into the spoon that would be too funny. Cheesy

I love it.  I love the Spoonbridge and Cherry.  I hadn't heard they were going to do those renovations.  I might have to cruise over there and take a cherryless picture myself. 

Nice work!  I haven't been to the State Fair in years, but I might have to go just to see your needlework!  Very cool.
