Venice Part 1


First off I would like to put a shout out to Cecilia. She is the one responsible for the start of this design. To me this is the most beautiful design Martina has ever done, also this is the most challenging thing I have EVER stitched! The backstitching was BRUTAL! Martina paid attention to the detail and as you can see the detail is amazing in this design. I am sorry that I am unable to capture the true beauty of this design but I believe it would be impossible. Now I have started Chinese and it is coming along a bit slowly but there is consistent progress and I will post when I get my parts done. I am going to let Joyce work out all the kinks for me......LOL!
I would also like to say that I have so much enjoyed seeing everyone's works here. You have been so inspiriring.
That is my little girl Lucy laying on my lap under there. She is such a sweetheart.

That center is drop-dead GAWJUS! You could frame that alone and it would be a knock-out!
