Hey all,
I have been bitten by the embroidery bug....Hard!
The time I have spent searching for patterns-I now have a lovely collection.
This was my second project....My first was an embarassing mess!
CC appreciated!
Thanks  Grin

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

That's a really nice rose pattern and your stitching is lovely.

Any ideas?

Really lovely!

If you sew, you could cut it out and use it as an applique. Or perhaps back it with some felt and make a brooch? Framing it would be a nice way to show it off, though!

Oh! I went over and snagged the rose pattern from your blog, by the way. Thanks for the link. Your baby is ADORABLE!

That is so pretty!  I am about to make my first attempt at embroidery and this gives me hope that someday soon I will be able to make something pretty!

I've only tried this once myself so I must say what an awesome job this is for your second attempt!
