Be kind!  This is my first attempt into embroidery!

My sister is a huge fan of a local artist, Kurt Halsey.  Recently, she found this print that they sell as an embroidery iron on transfer, and I got the simple request of "make this please? k thanks" (Seriously--that's all she wrote).  Problem was, it was a small 4x4 print, and I have never embroidered before.  So I printed the picture, traced it onto some fabric and got to work stitching.

Here's a link to the print: http://www.sublimestitching.com/kurthalsey.html

Man is embroidery addictive!

I got this stitched up in one day, went out the next day and found this perfect frame and put it right in!
The stitching isn't perfect, and the fabric is a bit wonky, but I think she'll love it.  Now I have to wait three weeks until her birthday to give it to her, and the wait is killing me!
So I thought I'd share it here.

Here's the overall look of it:

Now I want to embroider everything!  Comments welcome!
