To get started in embroidery I'd recommend these 2 books: Sublime Stitching: Hundreds of Hip Embroidery Patterns and How-to  by Jenny Hart & Doodle-Stitching: Fresh & Fun Embroidery for Beginners by Aimee Ray.
I used a variety of stitches on this ...but mainly back stitching & split stitching. For filling in, satin stiching is good!  Wink

Embroidery is so fun & not too expensive to start! I hope you try it out & love it!

Thank you! I'm really in love with this one. The best part about doing a swap like this is that it gets you to craft outside the comfort zone & try new things! I probably wouldn't have thought to stitch a geisha otherwise.  Smiley
