This is astounding. I'm so amazed at how your inspiration sprang from something so scrary.  I love the way you finished it in pillow form, too.

I just can't shake the idea of how this would be a wonderful object for a Cure charity auction.  Gorgeous job.  This rocks!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

You made art. So powerful!

And French knots are easy, once you "get" them. That took me less than 5 years.

This is amazing-scary-brilliant and oh-so-tangible - so often needlework is one dimensional/flat, you've really made it come to life in this piece. Wonderful, wonderful work!
