This project is absolutely gorgeous!

I love it when people combine painting with embroidery. I think it gives it such an interesting contrast between the colored part of the canvas and the raised stitching.

I think my favorite things are the embroidery on the cushions and cute little purple tassels.

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

This is a fabulous piece!  The amount of detail you managed to incorporate is just amazing, especially with the tinting.  Nice work.

I just wanted to let you know that this has inspired me to do my first hoop! I am in a swap right now with a partner that loves 'em and have a great idea for her.

I was always scared to try doing hoops because of the amount of space to fill and my lack of ability. Definitely going to paint some area and then embellish with some fun stitches.
