What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take you time, read the book and go step by step, this is a great way to use up your stash of luscious fabrics like organzas, satins and silks. You don't need to go the same colour theme that Jenny used you can go wild and make it in red and black, purples or whatever your heart desires. The threads and fabrics are out there you just need to make a decision and start stitching.

So beautiful! Love the creamy colors and the textured details. I'd love to see this one close up. It took some doing!

You did a stunning job, and congratulations on your well-deserved ribbon! Perhaps they will add a category for embroidery next time... but the lovely result is that you have recreated a true heirloom for generations and I am SO glad I got to enjoy it! Very, very beautiful. And I love your adjustments, too.
