What are you most proud of? I like the whole piece. If I had to choose one thing it would have to be the bullion stitches. They are very time consuming, but I think they turned out lovey.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Give yourself time to explore and leave some spacing between the stitches. My piece will finish tightly as I didn't leave enough space between the handwork and the machine stitching. Don't be afraid to experiment, let your imagination soar and there is no wrong way to put your piece together. In the end, all the stitching and colors come together!

Your bullion stitches are superb. They are like little caterpillars crawling across the work. All the colours are great as well. Really like it

I agree the bullion stitches are too cool - I was just thinking that I wanted to use those in my newest project...
