My first real try at embroidery. A little piece inspired by the movie Avatar.
'Eye - see you'
I have the ruler next to it measuring 2 inches.

I would never have guessed it was your first real try, that is lovely!  You really gave it depth with the... I know there's a technical term for it, but the light-shiny bits of white. Smiley

Thankyou everyone for your kind words.  Kiss
It's given me great confidence to start slightly larger projects as well now. I found it really satisfying and therapeutic making it.

This is really nice! You should stick with embroidery because you have a real talent.
