Very nice!  I've been thinking about learning this but just keep putting it off.  How long have you been at stitching if you don't mind the asking?  Hard to learn?

I love my gnome! Thank you marleymiss! Cheesy

Embroidery is a relatively easy craft to start because the supplies are inexpensive. Once you have figured out 2 or 3 basic stitches, you can just run with it! Smiley

Here's the link to Andrea Zuill's original design. It's a freebie, but please link back to the designer's original out of courtesy.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Great job! You're stitching lines are so clean and neat.

Thanks! It's the first time I've stitched in a coloured hoop so I'm pretty pleased with how the colours look.
