I finished my first embroidery piece!:
This is the first block for my Alice in Wonderland quilt. I've never done embroidery before. It was way too hot to do my normal knitting this summer so I decided to try needlework out. Much cooler than working with wool.
The fabric is just bleached muslin. The design came from a coloring book that I've had for about 20 years.
Most of the piece is done in an outline stitch. Though I used some satin stitch to fill in the shoes and as an accent on the dress. I'm most proud of the satin stitch coming out really even and the eye. Eyes are really tricky. Oh and there is a french knot as the flamingos eye too. I think it took me five tries to figure out that french knot!
Now I'm working on the white rabbit.
