I used a dover book for the design, but I made up my own thread colors and stitches. The flower is done with silk embroidery ribbon...first try at that. It's mostly  DMC floss, silk for the face. I made her up for Mother's day. My mom likes her a lot. I like the way she came out and right now, she is my blog header and avatar until I finish something else from my stash. I hope you like her.

That's funny...  She does look like a very good secret keeper.  Lovely work!
