For the One Tiny Embroidered Thing swap I sent this to my partner!

She's a steampunk kind of gal! She is satin-stitched with back-stitch outline.  French knot buttons on her gown and in her hair doodads.  Silver chain-stitch makes up the draped chains behind her. 



She is appliqued onto a coptic stitched journal (also with silver metallic thread. 


Please tell me what you think!

Whoa, this is really incredible! The satin stitch looks great, and I love the use of chain stitch for chains. Smiley

Fantastic. I too love the chain - that must have taken a while.
