True Love Blackwork

True Love Blackwork (Design by Elizabeth Almond). This is the piece I put up for a charity auction to help a little girl in our neighborhood get much needed physical therapy. Cross stitch, blackwork (or redwork, whichever you want to say), and beading, done on white 28-count evenweave.  Here is a better depiction of the actual colors (taken in the sunlight):

State Fair Spoils

Entered a few stitches in the State Fair this year.  Competition there is much tougher than the county level.  But still not too bad:

Fair Rewards

Entered a few stitches in the County Fair again this year.
 First Place and High Blue.

Second Place.

I was pretty disappointed concerning the fact that the judges marked me down for the framing only, as I assumed I was being judged on the stitching.  I can see the framing come in as to Best of Show, but overall I thought it should be judged on the stitching.  Oh well, still not too shabby:
