My Work in a Fair!?

Another update to my Epic Mario Cross-StitchI am trying to get done by the end of July since I will be submitting this piece and a couple of others to the Shippensburg's Community Fair. A friend brought up the fair and how I should submit my work to it. He also asked if I could create this same piece for his son. I told him the price would be very high considering how much time I have put into it. His reaction was just priceless to me. Cross-stitch and embriodery can be viewed as a cheap craft but you have to consider how many hours someone puts into one piece.

I spent a bit of time just filling out the entry form for the fair! There was about 50 sections under the needlework category. I felt my head exploded from the first time I looked at it. The only good thing is if I did not write down the right section they will do it for me when I get there. I'm a bit excited and nervous in one. I have never had my work judge so we will see how I do. The nervous part is all my work has to do with geeky things and I don't know what the judges will think.

I have another project I am working on that was commissioned by Heidi that blogs on TheSugarMonster. I am very proud to be working on it for her and can't wait to send it to her.

Wow, this is just amazing. I can't even imagine the eye strain and hours that went into this, but looks like it was worth it. :) -hollychihuahua from s-b
