I embroidered this for Goldfishpollywog for the Embroidery Swap!



It was such a blast to make! 

It reads:
The road goes ever on and on, from the door where it began...
Now far ahead the road has gone, and I must follow if I can.


I was inspired by this:


Thanks for looking!

Thank you everyone! Cheesy  I took this project on vacation with me, so it was nice to have something to work on while the hubby and kids played. It's the first time I have done so much stitching in such a concentrated area.  I really appreciate all the positive feedback!  Kiss

I wanted to do something with that picture as well but I never in my wildest dreams would have thought of something as awesome as this. It makes me happy just to look at it.
