Hey, this is my first time posting in this forum! It's my first attempt at embroidery and I know it's rubbish but you can just humour me! Cheesy

I know I didn't use any fancy stitching but I decided to make something african themed for a relative living in Africa (I'm going to SA this wednesday and can't wait!!) and I think it's good enough for that!

Comments and criticism welcomed - advice would be a great help for any future projects!

Sorry the pictures aren't the best in the world (if I had the flash on you couldn't see anything!)

oh! I think it's really pretty. You made it obvious that fancy stitching really isn't necessary.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
