Done at last!

The last stitch, the last button, and the last detail...  My eyes are so sore tonight that after I have a large gin and tonic I am going to put ice packs on them... I decided to have it professionally photographed because the lighting for all the black on black is beyond my skills..  It has been a long journey...over 3 1/2 years since I started collecting the images.  I still love every one of them.  But I will never start such a elaborate piece again either.

The earliest posts go back back to Oct and Nov of 2010..... and here is the photo of the materials as I was gathering them together..  all sepias, browns, and blacks...

It looks fabulous. I didn't realize it had been that long in the making. I remember your first post, and the others in between. I wish I could see it in person, all together and finished up. Good luck in the quilt show with it.
