I bought a Leisure Arts book yesterday called 'teach yourself to embroider' and this is the first result.
It was definitely a learning experience-I mastered the 'lazy daisy' and stem stitch, but definitely goofed up on the bullion knot and whipped spider web. The good news is that after thinking about it last night, I'm pretty sure I could do all of them now. I think I'm on my way to another crafty obsession!
Speaking of embroidery, does anyone have the book 'The New Crewel'? I'd like to see some finished projects from it. It looks so cute.
