I just started embroidering this summer.  This is my first major project that I have completed.  I am super happy with how it came out but any tips or tricks would be appreciated!

This is a quote from George Carlin about how heroic nature is.

love it!  the quote and the embroidery.  i love the colors of the flowers.  i feel like it gives it a bit of a retro feel (maybe that's just me).

What an awesome design.  The way the flowers frame the quote is perfect and I love the colors and stitches that you chose to use.  Looking forward to more of your work!  Smiley

I loved this so much I had to call everyone in my house in the room to see it, lol.  I love how you first notice the pretty flowers, then you start reading it and it seems like some sweet reflection, then BAM, George Carlin. Haha!!
