What Wowed us in Creativity

 This lady stitched Brookes Vintage Winter and my she gave it such 
impact with the pearls...outlining the gloves and stole was exactly what gave
it that wow factor...She admitted it had been years since she picked up cross stitching...
it certainly looks like she is a PRO all over again...

It pays to put your best forward....
Many have been surprised time and time again...
