What are you most proud of? I was able to mount this project on the wall.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I didn't have a way to mount my previous projects on the wall because I did not have the mounting materials such as stretcher bars, paint, adhesive, etc. even though that would provide a more finished look. For this project, I did not bind the piece. I used batting and a muslin backing and stapled the project to a 12x12 artist canvas. Now I know that this works, I will try larger pieces.

Thank you, Carol Ann. I need to learn more embroidery stitches and find more stuff to couch. I just ordered some sari yarn on ebay. I hope I like it. There aren't any local places where I can shop so it is hard to find a variety of supplies. I am totally addicted!!!

The combination of machine stitching and hand work really works in this piece.
