Wow! Stunning work, lovely colors, and terrific execution. How wonderful that your aunt is passing on a family and cultural tradition, and how nice of you to share it with us! I'm also curious about the design - yours?

That's lovely embroidery!!, and I love the abstract quality and the bright colours.

I foresee a night of calling my little sister (who theoretically speaks Portuguese) and asking her questions like "What's Portuguese for 'embroidery'? And 'tutorial'? How about... "How to do Castelo Branco embroidery" - what's that in Portuguese?? What's 'stitch'? Can you look up 'weave stitch' for me please??

on and on and on. Cheesy

I love how these flowers look. I want to try it.

It's absolutely gorgeous. I love traditional embroidery, and your stitching is very professional. Thank you for having such a zoomed in picture, too. I've never seen a style that makes stripes for larger filled in areas. It's really interesting.
