I used colors pretty similar to Aimee's piece since the recipient really likes hers. I made one of the whole thing that's 8"x10" and two 4"x6" pieces that are cropped portions. I used a lot of chain stitch, and some stem stitch, satin stitch, running stitch, back stitch, and french knots.

Wow, that's very impressive. I've never seen the original piece you reference, but I can see you worked hard on it and love the time and effort you've put in it--kudos!

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad
