Embroidery Show Magic!


Last night was amazing and lovely! We were at the gallery for 10 hours yesterday, hence me just waking up, but it was such an awesome night. I felt so much love and support from everyone who came and the feedback was so nice! I am so relieved that I finished my five foot cowgirl in time for the show, it was definitely down to the wire, but with the help of Maureen, everything got done. I got the cowgirl all done and Maureen matted all of my pieces like the pro that she is!

I have a zillion pictures, so I will post them in series, here is round one:

Here's all of the embroidery ladies!

I love how HUGE the cowgirl is. I don't know why I've never thought to embroider something that big before. You've given me a healthy dose of inspiration!
