in the recent chocolate swap (organised by the lovely sweety28303), i was partnered with Zombie_Queen. she likes día de los muertos, and wanted some wall art for her home, so i decided to make her some embroidered hoops...



it's almost all backstitch, with a little satin stitch for the hearts of some of the flowers.



i designed the pattern myself, and i'm considering develping it into a pattern. we'll see how that goes...



i had heaps of fun working with these bright colours, and with the floral motifs.

this is great! your backstitch is so clean and even.  you should def turn this into a pattern--i'd pay good money for that design!
