This is my latest piece. It's worked on the corner of what is going to eventually become a much larger piece, but for now I was happy with it so I decided to post pics! It's a mixture of needlepoint (mostly straight stitch and chain stitch) and watercolor which was inspired by the mix of the two used in the cute narwal embroidery featured this month. This is a shot of the whole thing



And a couple of close ups of my favorite parts, namely her legs and the caterpillar

It's so pretty! I love the effect of the watercolor and stitches together. It's wonderful, great job!
