Found Friday - Hand Embroidery

Today I thought I would share some hand embroidery ideas that I have found.  Back in February I created a "wishlist of fun stuff."  One of the items I listed was the embroidery pattern of "The Princess and the Pea"  that I purchased from Follow the White Bunny.  It was sent to me almost immediately in a pdf format, and I couldn't wait to get started.

My finished product ~




As part of the file, Nicole sent not one but two different ideas for completing the project. 
I did change some of the colors and a few of the stitches, and I love the way it turned out!



For thread I used Appleton which I had also used on the samplers that I made for my granddaughter and grandson.  I find that it fills in an area much better than DMC.

My next project is a needlepoint dress ~ more about that later (:

Suppliers:
Renaissance thread (my newest favorite)
