Sistine Chapel in cross stitch!

Posted by jerry on May 2nd, 2006 — Posted in Journal

I’ve done a few small cross-stitch kits, and I’ve seen some extraordinary embroideries, and know how much work goes into them. But this one represents a herculaean achievement. This embroidery, of the complete Sistine Chapel ceiling took stitcher Joann Lopianowski-Roberts, nine years to complete – some 2800 hours. It was displayed at a show in Austin, Texas (USA) called: THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS-A CELEBRATION OF THIRTY YEARS OF THE AUSTIN STITCHERY GUILD from 10-12 February 2006 – and understandably, it took off a few prizes 🙂
