Embroidery Project

I decided to revisit a type of needlework I did years ago; a purely decorative item for my first 'bedroom' piece. The samplers I did in the past were mostly cross stitch. This one is truly embroidered using satin, stem,chain, and french knot stitches. The design is original and I still have some work to do in the corners.

When I finish that I will stretch and frame it and it will be ready to hang. I think the next bedroom piece will be embroidered pillow cases with possibly crocheted trim.

It's lovely! Your stitches are so even and I love your color choices! Wish I could get mine to look so good...
