So I finished my first bit of embroidery ever:

Photobucket



I'm pretty happy with it. My stitches definatly got better as the block went on both in tension and being even. I will say that the satin stitch parts are pretty darn tricky...but I think they are a worth it for the contrast and effect. I just can't see using it on a large scale...that would drive me nuts!


So one down....a whole bunch to go....

Why is Alice fondling a flamingo while standing on a hedgehog?

It's from the section of the book when she's playing croquet with the queen. They use hedgehogs as balls (which have a tendency to wander off when no one is looking) and flamingos as mallets (and Alice has one that doesn't want to co-operate).

Didn't you read the book?

Wow - that came out really nice! This is such a flash back to my own childhood. I remember it as one of the first stories my Mom read to me and my sister when we were kids that didn't have ::gasp:: pictures on every page! I remember her telling us we had to use our "imagination" to make the pictures in our heads as we heard the words. To this day I will always associate this story with jammies, and night time and home. =)
