I am so envious of people that can embroider good.  Your stitches are so beautiful.  Great job!

Thank you! Sweety it's a skill you can learn. Just practice and most importantly take your time while stitching.

wow!  i am amazed at your work!! i really have to learn to embroider!  i did try once, but seperating the thread was too annoying, maybe i should just use the whole thickness, it looks great on your project .... love your yarn tattoo as well!

umm.. did you cut the thread first to a certain length (for example 50cm) and then separate it to 3+3strands? that's pretty simple.

I have to tell you guys: I just went to visit the friends I gave this to, and it was on display so that it's pretty much the first thing you see when you go into their livingroom. I was touched  Smiley

i think i cut the strand way too long and that's why it was hard to seperate!  i shall have to try with a shorter length!

Very beautiful! I like the fact that you chose to fill in only certain elements, which gives your piece a very interesting look! I have never used all 6 strands before - I think the boldness lends itself to this pattern very well. I'm a little biased, as I just finished this pattern too...I think it's a pretty neat one, and I'm a big fan of UT, myself.

Kudos to you!
