This is my first large scale embroidery project. I have had it mounted and framed since this picture was taken and it's for a friend's wedding. I completed it in about 3 weeks.

This is the picture I worked from. I transferred the pattern from a print out of the image, with carbon paper taped to the back. I used a small blunt tool to trace it out onto my fabric.


this is the pattern transferred



and various stages of progress:






And completed!
