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 -

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.

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
