This was a birthday gift for my mom's birthday in February, umm, it took me a little longer than the month of February to finish.  In fact, I finished it last week Embarrassed  Since the frame was sort of a non-typical size, I had to cut the mat for it myself, so it's off, but I still like how it turned out and though my mom's super picky and will notice it, I don't think many others will.  It does feel a bit naked with the white space between the flower girl and dancers, but I got tired and just wanted it finished, and to keep myself from taking it out of the frame and adding more to it, I papered the back too Smiley

I think I wrote slightly more about it on my blog if you're interested.  Thanks for looking!

eta- the pattern that I used is the mexicana motifs from the patternbee (http://www.patternbee.com/RE7111.html) on the page for this design she gives the pattern history as a reproduction from a 1940's newspaper.

It's really lovely! I really like how you made a scene and the space between the flower girl and other designs makes it look more like a real scene that's been reproduced in redwork.  She's the "wall flower" at the dance!

That's a lovely composition. I love all the details you got in; even though it's all one color, it's very clear and precise.

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad
