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....??
all folded up:
folded in half (the two long sides have the more intricate design, while the two shorter sides are slightly less intricate):
