Is this Freedom??


Ever have one of those projects where you think to yourself... WILL I EVER GET THROUGH WITH THIS COLOR?? I cannot... repeat cannot... stand dark drab colors such as browns and blacks. Freedom has a LOT of browns, blacks, grays, and let's not forget the *blended* browns, blacks, and grays! I faintly see a light at the end of the tunnel, though. Thank goodness!! Freedom is being stitched as part of the Soldier Memorial Project dedicated to fallen soldiers in the Afghanistan and Iraq Wars. The soldier I am stitching this memorial for is Brandon Ramey, a 22yr old from Belvidere, Illinois. So far, I have 111 hours into this project and if I do say so myself... It's turning out fabulous!
