I recently started to embroider a few of my sketches to try out different stitches. I'm not really sure what to do with these, apart from framing them, but they're fun to do! Here's the first:

It's a combination of chain stitches, split stitches, stem stitches and whipped stem stitches.
I hope you like it!

That is very nice. It looks like a monogram.  Maybe you could put it on a bag - or the lapel of a coat - I don't know how large it is.

Thank you, guys! I'm actually blushing here. Smiley

It's about 30 cm long. I've been thinking about a bag as well... But I already have a ridiculous amount of bags...
Well, there's no such thing as to many handbags, is there? Smiley

It looks to me like an abstract of a human form dancing - the head down, arms flung back above the head and standing on tiptoes with one foot lifted a bit . . .

It's very cool, whatever it is!  Good job!
