Whew! This one took some work! It was a lot of fun to do & got me back into embroidery shape, hopefully!

All hand embroidered, mostly satin stitch with a little backstitch & split stitch action. Comments & critiques are welcome!

This is awesome! I've just started embroidering recently, and this is totally motivation to keep going and get better! There is so much you can do with it!

Great work!
