Kurt Vonnegut is a favorite for both me and my brother.  I copied this illustration from Slaughter-House Five for a xmas/housewarming gift.



I am just starting to try embroidery.  I copied the stiches from a book, but I don't remember their names.  For most of it, I used two strands of floss.  The fabric is a recycled sheet.

I love Slaughter House Five! I recognized the quote immediately when I saw the thumbnail for this!

Great work!

I would love to receive this as a house-warming gift- I love it (and all things Vonnegut).
