VERY cute! I love any tag blankets or ideas like that.  I kept meaning to make one similar but now my smallest one has moved on.
Cute idea and marketable too.

Sorry to butt into the conversation but thought I'd add my two cents too.  In the past with satin stitches (especially large areas like this work) I've used all 6 ends but unravelled them all before starting to stitch. This helps keeps the lines smooth and makes it just a bit faster than single end.
So if you can try it, snip a say 1 to 2 foot long piece, unravel each end with a needle, place them together and embroider like that.  Let me know how it goes!
Good luck!

Yeah, wealhtheow! Great first try. I remember when I tried to do that kind of embroidery it was frustrating to get it to look that good.
Elizabethdee is right- it's a great try and keep practicing! Those professionals make it look easy...

Awesome job and great ideas! My kind of humor definitely!
Where did you get these patterns? I haven't seen them on SStitching or am I just blind?
They are great. I love Ganesh!

No problem- Glad I could help!  Grin
Let me know if you find out anything.  I have been doing lots of "modern" embroidery (sublime stitching and other stuff) but I'd love to delve into my roots.  It would make my granma proud (she's gone now but you know what I mean). I can always ask around my cousins in Hungary too if we get stuck or for patterns- so let me know!

It looks similar to Hungarian embroidery.
Here's an example: http://www.lmntl.com/pillow.html
My grandmother used to do stuff like it and it was mostly satin.  I think it helps to outline it with a backstitch or split stitch but it's a whole lot of work.
HTH!

I LOVE it! I hope your father did too.
Very neat and aesthetically beautiful!
We are our own worst critics, aren't we? It's perfect- don't fret! Love the matting and frame too.
