Comments: I wanted to learn how to embroider using this technique so thought this was a great place to begin learning those skills. Tanja also critique your work when you send her close-up photos, which I think is wonderful.

I have stitched many projects of hers which I will post later and others that are just waiting for me to get to them.

I chose this particular design because it was a starter design and I also love pansies. They are such wonderful flowers. I need to do more thread painting as it makes any design that you stitch look so very natural. Again, this is a technique that the  more you do, the better you get, like most things in life, but not all.
