This is my first time embroidering so go easy on me Smiley

I'm thinking about framing it and giving it to my mom for her birthday, since she loves fall so much!

What do you all think?

I think it is beautiful!
Especially for a first time. You have talent.
I bet your mom will love to get it as a present (I know I would).

Very nice stitching for your first time! I love new stitchers who take on satin stitch right from the start.

I'll bet Mom would love it - you could even frame it in the hoop!

Great gift for mom, you did such a wonderful job on it.  I love the colors and design and would never guess it's your first embroidery project!  Hope you got the bug like the rest of us and will post more of your creations.  Smiley

It's lovely! Did you use a pattern or is this your own design? Either way it's a great job!
