Am I ever glad to finally post this! This is my lovely Joe Shuster embroidery (Canadian, yo!)
It took me forever to even decide which drawing of his to stitch up, and of course in the end,
I chose the smoking gals!
I started it in January, and could have completed it so much quicker if I had worked on it daily,
which is how I like it. However, during that time I moved, and it threw everything out of sync!
The couch is six inches long
