BTW, a fair is also a place that they judge cross stitch. And it just so happens that Waya kicked some serious butt at the Tennessee Valley Fair this year. She entered three Ink Circles pieces and took home three ribbons - two of them First Place.
She stitched them all with the charted colors 1-over-2 on 40-count linen. "Growth Rings" won first place for Counted Cross Stitch on Linen. "Tanglewood" won first prize in Counted Cross Stitch, Novelty or Fantasy. "I Still Do" won third place in Counted Cross Stitch, Primarily Flowers.
All I can say is your work is beautiful, Waya. Way to go!
