Hello everyone!

This was made for a class back in September, and it was my first time doing any sort of embroidery. I'm really happy with it. I've picked up some tips since then, but I thought I'd post it and see what you all think  Smiley It's mostly satin stitch, some chain stitch, and then french knotting in all the dark brown and white areas.
 
Thanks!



Sorry for the poor quality... I just took the picture with my cell phone. I'll see if I can con my sister into taking a better picture for me later Wink

This is beautiful! I'm looking forward to seeing a better photo, but you can really get a sense of the intricacy from this.

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

It looks beautiful. But it would be better if you can upload a more clear picture  Wink
