I based this embroidery on the book by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, but I modified it for my family and I embellished it with the "fancy carpet" and the framed pea pod.
I used FrauShizzle's hoopless frame tutorial to finish it. The fringe on the carpet is turkey work.
I hope you like it! Cheesy

I love that the dad pea has glasses and the carpet is divine.
