I made these pieces for Sam (aka Sunnysidey) in a private swap on Swap-bot.  The idea was we would both embroider each other a scene and a quote from a movie and the recipient would have to guess what it was from.  Ironically, we both chose the same movie for each other.  Great minds, no?  Okay, so both of mine were a dead giveaway but I couldn't help myself.

The dream scene from The Big Lebowski- The Dude and his special lady friend, Maude.







I also made her this Fight Club Embroidery.


Thanks for looking, sorry about the picture overload  Grin  Comments and Criticism are always welcomed.  And don't hesitate to ask any questions.

This is amazing, gorgeous and breathtaking!!!  What a lucky partner! I was trying to figure out what embroidery technique you used to make the braids, is it couching?
