An traced embroidered comic from a US published Gothic Lolita Bible. The girl says in the end "you taste sweet." This is my second embroidery project. A friend helped me sew the pillow. Thanks for looking. Smiley

That is very well done and I like it!  I also like the "whaaa?" look on your cat in that second picture.

If anyone needs me I'll be in the angry dome!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Great stitching! The lines are so clean.

Very pretty and such sharp stitching lines.  It looks exactly like the printed page.  A lovely cushion and well executed. 
A word of warning.  In the past I have embroidered cushions (although only in cross stitch) and unless the fabric and thread is very sturdy they can wear thin with use.  I found out the hard way that cotton floss on linen fabric isn't as hard wearing as you might think.  I made a cushion cover for an anniversary present which ended up loved almost to death after a few years.  If I can find the pictures I might try and post them.
