I love the picture you posted above.  (I love neawear's work!)  I would love a piece for my sewing room, or for my living room.  Definitely need some inspiration and art in those two spaces.

I was gonna hold off on swaps for a while. I really was.
But I have all the supplies required for this and I love embroidery SO DAMN MUCH.

Do I have a problem? Probably.

(Also- pixiefirefly, I might be stalking you. It's an accident, I promise, but a happy one.)
