This one is a present for my aunt, who is going through chemo. I put lots of good wishes into it for her.  Smiley 

 Stitched on felt using outline stitch, chain stitch, forbidden knot, backstitch, whipped backstitch, lazy daisy and satin stitch.

First shot shows the pink: ( it helps that it's also her favorite color.)




Then a detail shot of the flowers,




Remember ladies, do your exams. Please.

That...is very awesome. Wow- awesome actually doesn't do it justice, but my list of adjective escapes me.

That is unbelievable, totally. It shames my limited clumsy embroidery but makes me smile to know that someone has such talent and creativity that I could one day hope to achieve as well.

This is so beautiful, I would love to try something similar (but simpler Wink) to go in my charity (I hate that word but I cannot think of anything better) hampers this Christmas - if that's ok?

I hope your aunt feels better soon and may she recover fully. I hope all women realise that a little inconvenience and discomfort from breast exams and pap smears is well worth the peace of mind and, God forbid, the early detection.

Bless you and your family
