Thanks to craftster I have started picking up embroidery.  I stumbled upon Urban Threads when they were having their huge 50% of everything sale so I picked up a couple of hand embroidery patterns for 50 cents!  I tackled this design (Hummingbirdy) to practice the satin stitch.  I struggled at first but I think I may have the hang of it now.  Thanks for looking  Cheesy

That is GORGEOUS and your stitching is perfect!  I thought it was machine stitched from the preview pic.  Satin stitch gives me trouble, so I'm super impressed that yours looks so nice!
