I'm pretty new at this whole embroidery thing, but when I saw the Geisha stitch-along, I had to join in! It took over 2 months of off-and-on work to make the letter K from dafont.com's Geisha font (yay free fonts!). She consists mainly of backstitch, but the stamens of the hibiscus flowers are lazy-daisy (but I think of them as modified fly-stitch). Direct link to the font: http://www.dafont.com/geisha.font. I signed her "A-na/Wood/Rat" which is my name in Japanese syllabic, and the year I was born (1984 was the last wood-rat).
