What are you most proud of? Getting it finished in time for the birthday. I like the veins on the leaves which are above the water. . What advice would you give someone starting this project? Double check with the original as you you quilt and colour - I made a glaring mistake on one of the petals, but had no time to fix it, I haven't treated it with fabric medium as I wasn't happy with the effect on my previous picture (Girl with a Pearl Earring) so I'm not sure how durable it is. I'll experiment with other treatments till I get one I'm happy with then finish it.
