Yes, it is long, and, yes, it took me a long time to complete.
The pictures suck, they are just snaps. The piece hasn't been washed or blocked. I wanted to post it anyway because I am happy it is done.
Like all of the embroidery, it is done doodle style, all on the fly. No drawings or patterns.
This piece is about 40 x 10 inches. The darker color is actually the wall of my dining room. There is none of the stitching detail visible in these detail shots, I was trying to emphasize the cutwork. The second detail has a shadow which makes it easier to see. I will take some shots later for stitching detail later.
