Completed, my first embroidery!
I took this vintage embroidery pattern and added to it and refined it.  http://www.flickr.com/photos/sewshesews/5336796427/in/pool-341081@N20



Stitches used include lazy daisies, back stitch, satin stitch, seed stitch, stem stitch, scallop stitch, and chain stitch.  (Chain stitch is the fill on the wing).





Since this is my first embroidery comments, criticisms and any thoughts would be much appreciated!

Also, if anyone wanted my "new and improved" version of the pattern I could probably sort something out!

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

Thanks a bunch guys!  I'm glad you like it!  I guess technically I had done a bit of embroidery beforehand, I did a little bit of practice, and embroidered on a face mask.  But this was my first "proper" embroidery project, lol!  Still got a lot to learn and created plenty of messes Smiley
I'm looking forward to making another!
