Neuschwanstein Castle - fertig?

I'm pretty happy with it.
I've been there at least 7 times, maybe more.
First time was in 1981 when I traveled with my friend Tricia.
Then when I lived in Stuttgart between 1984 and 1987, I was there
with friends and family who visited.
I followed the Lone Beader's lead with painting a canvas and
mounting the beadwork on it.
I really like it.
Now, I have a crewel embroidery castle, a lace version,
a cross stitch version and a beaded version.
The public debut will be on Sunday, October 5th at the
Great Lakes Beadworkers Guild Bead Bonanza in Southfield, MI
Now to continue on my Bead Journal project
that I put down a couple of weeks ago.

Bad Liz! That looks beautiful! I love how the beads look against the blue sky! And, I am happy to hear that I inspired you!! Thanks for mentioning me! *blush* :D

Beautiful. I love the way the beads are used in different directions to mimic the texture of the trees, stones, etc.

Love the finished product, Liz. It is well worth all the work you did on it.

I was looking for Neuschwanstein cross stitch and came across this instead. Just fantastic! And to think that you've beaded the entire thing. Amazing and beautiful!

I LOVE YOU said...
