Absolutely beautiful. I love the combination of stitches and beads and linen pieces. And the colours... I can't wait to see the whole piece.

I love the high level of texture you achieved -- both visually with the different threads, and in real life (I'm sure} with the different stitches. I particularly like the tall spindely flower (holly hock like) that comes up towards the top right...

Emmy this is fantastic-when I enlarged it and looked at all the stitches it is incredible-well done and I look forward to seeing it when it is completely finished.

Hi!
I am overwhelmed with the variety of stitches. Since I stick mainly to straight stitches (including many "crossed" ones) and French knots, this work almost makes me want to learn and use many others too. It is quite beautiful.

Emmy - I find myself coming back over and over again to view this piece (as well as others) on your blog. It is so emotive I love it. I'm trying to learn how to embroider and find this piece so inspiring. Thank you.
