finished embroidery

So yesterday I promised that as soon as I'd finished the embroidery I've been working on, I'd show you. Well I only just finished (at least I think it's finished. every time I look at it I see another spot I could put something!) so here's the photo!My next piece will not be as... crowded. This was just for practice. And fun! I found it very relaxing to just sit and doodle with the threads as I watched telly. No idea what I'm gonna do with it though...any thoughts???

I googled free embroidery patterns and here's some links that I liked -

If you like any particular part of my embroidery above and want a pattern/picture of it, just let me know and I'll draw it, scan it and post it for you for free!

That's amazing! I'm always in awe of anyone who is patient enough to do embroidery. I love to look at it but I'm terrible at doing it.

Thank you for your kind words on the loss of our kitty. I so appreciate them.

I think it is GORGEOUS....I like that it is crowded, it is like going into a candy store...your eye just keeps moving. It is so neat to look at.

This is so awesome! I love that it is so full and free form. That is how I embroirder my hearts. They just unfold before my eyes, and I am always so delighted how they turn out! Elizabeth
