well... her birthday isn't technically until Saturday but I sent out her gift today, hooray!
it is my very first embroidery masterpiece =P
my fingers are killlllling me! but it was so worth it! such a labor of love and i am more than pleased. i have learned some as i progressed and see where i have much room for improvement. but what matters most is i know bertie is going to adore it <3
i only took 2 progress shots. since it was my first one i concentrated much more on the actual piece than progress pics. plus i needed to make it in time to send it to SoCal and get it there by Saturday.
heres the finished piece. i sewed up a cute little bow to hide the screw and bolt on the hoop, as well as ribbon to hang it.
and to hide my knots in the back i glued some felt
whatcha think? i think i wanna embroider more =D
