Ten years?! Wow. I can totally understand why though, there are just so many different colors! Was there a lot of colors you had to mix? Like 2 different colored floss strands together? (I don't know the technical term if there is one :/ )
You did a great job and all that hard work definitely paid off!
You have every right to be proud 1. because it turned out lovely 2. you stuck with it and finished it. I have a project that took me ten years too ... packed away for nearly 8 years when my kids were little.
