    Superbly done. I will never get use to all of the background detail…never, ever!

  • Thank you so much. I felt like getting back into those swiggly flower details again, they just make me zone out lol x

    Gorgeous work, Anita!! Adorable Alice ♥ and also love the detailed background!! (wow! how many hours did it take!!)

  • Thank you dear Sandy- As always I didnt really time it (I keep meaning to). When I do a background like that I guess I treat it like a bit of knitting, I pick up and do a bit then leave it- (usually in the commercial breaks whilst watching evening TV lol) xxx
