Big embroidered fan art  
I finished the piece I've been working on since January. It's my first embroidered fan art!

More pics and embroidery neepery here:


It's got me thinking about embroidered book covers and how cool it would be to make one.

It's beautiful! You rarely see three-dimensional embroidery like that. Cool idea!

Thank you! Learning how to do the 3-d embroidery was a large part of the fun of this one. :)

Did you come up with the elaborate design yourself?
It is beautiful!

My daughter is just learning to embroidery, and it has been so long since I learned that I had to bring in the big guns (My Mom) to teach her.

Thank you for the kind words-- it is my design.

My aunt taught me when I was young, and I didn't use it for a while, but it all came back. :) Hope your daughter enjoys it!
