but oh, so, worth the wait! This is DIVINE! The textures fantastic:

And the details just want to be examined closely!

Thank you so much, Sarah xxx

That's a great idea. And a LOT of work!

I'm glad it was worth the wait Katerin! The thread is embroidery floss split into a single strand. Incredibly time consuming, but quite therapeutic and very rewarding.

I have another copy of this portrait that I can use... for another embroidery, perhaps ;)

It is finely done and with white fibers interwoven! Elegant!
