2  embroidered wedding canopy in Needlework: Completed Projects by cowgirlinthesand on: September 13, 2007 10:05:33 PM
I spent all summer embroidering a chuppah (wedding canopy) that I was commissioned to make. It is about 5ft x 6ft and I embroidered the border about 8 inches deep.  The design is based of the couple's invitations.  I had never done anything this large before and didn't have a whole lot of time to do it, but I did finish!  It was pretty intense near the end though, I spent an entire weekend doing nothing else and my hands started to cramp up...actually they still kind of hurt.  Is it lame to have an embroidering injury....??
