My white cloth is done!!

Let the bells ring out!!!!!!!!!

This afternoon I put the final stitch into my white cloth
which has been over a year in the making.
A HUGE, LARGE, GIGANTIC
thank you to Karen Ruane 
who taught and inspired me
in the 2012 Embroider, Embellish, Create class
and on a daily basis on her blog.   

Here is the end result...

These pictures are all from the left side of the cloth.
Over the next couple of days I will show you more.

Congratulations!! You're an inspiration to me. I'm working away on my cloth and if its half as good as yours, I'll be happy.

OMG that is literally a piece of art. It should be behind glass in a frame! Beautiful MA!

Your cloth is beautiful. I left you several comments on your Flickr page.So many unique additions all add up to one beautiful piece.
It is hard to photograph white cloth for some reason.

Wow! It's so beautiful MA! Are you doing the happy dance? I thought pic#2 was gorgeous, and then I saw the next pic, and the next. Lovely work and a wonderful treasure you've created.
How large is your cloth?
