Masterfully done!  The flow of the stitches on the horse's "pelt" are very impressive/lifelike and I like how the tail "breaks free" of the perimeter of the circular canvas.

What everybody else has already said, and I wish I could see it from the side because I know you've made it dimensional! 

Okay, really I wish I could hold it in my hands and twist it around and stare at it! 

No, really I want to watch over your shoulder while you create!  (Stopping now because I already sound creepy.)

Aww, thank you!  I'll try to take better pics of a dimensional piece, and maybe show the steps to making one!  :)

I am the luckiest swap partner ever and recipient of this beautiful piece of art. I can take more pictures if you like but some I have already taken from the side are (don't mind the stray dog hair in picture 2 - I only saw it in the pic and have now removed said stray hair -how do they get everywhere?!?  :o):







Sorry my picture taking abilities are shocking - but I hope it gives some idea of the amazingness of this piece of work - thanks so much Ludi for swapping with me  ;D
