    Izy,

    What detail! I love it, it is beautiful. You should be proud.

    I know what you mean about our own worst critic. My sister wants me to enter my black and white one in a contest, and I won't do it. I know the miters in the corners aren't right, and I know where I messed up on my stippling. I still may try to do one for a contest, just not that one.

    Thanks everyone for your lovely comments, my DH has just made a dowelling frame for handing it...I haven't made a typical hanging sleeve, I found on the net a simple way of making triangle pockets on each corner, you can slip doweling into each corner and it keeps it perfectly square!!

    I am going to start a new post with some pictures so I can share the technique incase some of the newbies like me find it easier!! :D :D

    GORGEOUS! I love that you used decorative stitches on the edges of the vines. I would never have thought of that.
