Va-rooom, va-rooooom!

The '68 Charger takes the lead!

The original picture



I am so very happy to say that this piece is finally done!!! I put the final stitches in it this evening. Here are some pics:

Completed product - "Auto Focus" setting
"Pinhole" Setting - this is showing the colors closer to what they really are.
"Pop Art"  setting - just wanted to give you a vivid look!
Notice the front end of the car. I personalized the license plate with my Uncle's name.

Now, it's got to be sent to my mother so she can get it framed and deliver it to her brother on time for his birthday. I really hope he likes it!

Now, I think I will either work on the Christmas Design SAL a bit, or prepare the fabric and begin the Ink Circles Cirque des Carreaux. Hmmmmm.......

Thanks for the email. That is so cool, my youngest would love it. Is that the Dukes of Hazzard car too, my boys love the dvd's of the old series. Maybe '69, it sure would pass for it. I cross stitch too. I'll have to share some of them on my blog one of these days.
