Project

Tree of Jesse (work in progress)

What are you most proud of? I am very lucky to find fabrics that reflect stain glass and to be able to embroider them to get the soulful image of the original window. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Study your image and play with your software. Don't be afraid of the amount of thread you use.
