i finished this earlier tonight. it took me about 8 hours
in total. finished size is about 12x10". the colours are a
bit off, but not by much.

now i wish i knew what to do with it.

pillow?
framed?

i took the illustration from a 50's grade school workbook.

OMG! Too cute! Frame it with a really retro frame (maybe modgepodge with the coloring book?)...

That's lovely!  And that reminds me that I have some children's health books from the 40s or 50s that probably have fun illustrations.

Framing it is a sound idea.  My throw pillows get abused by the people and cats in the house - I guess it depends on how you use your pillows.

i have a black longhaired cat, so i guess framing it is the best way to go!

you can see spots on that piece where his fur has already stuck!

Why can't puffins eat pancakes instead?

What a cute pattern! A modpodged frame is a fabulous idea. You could also make it 3-D with bits of crayon, buttons, glitter, tiny birds...
P.S. Theremin of doom, indeed. Great name! Smiley An embroidered theremin design would be interesting or odd... I love theremins. They look like they'd be so much fun to play!

That is amazing! I totally agree to frame it, because it is a work of art. Where did you learn how to embroider?

Wow...that's so beautiful.
What stitches did you use? I love the bark on the tree. It all looks so smoooooth...Have you been embroidering long?
(I'm just beginning.)

That's really lovely -- I've been slowly learning to embroider for a while.  It's been difficult for me to pick up, but very rewarding.
