Peace Dove

I finished another embroidery piece. I love this one. The design is from one of my fave places - Urban Threads. My son helped me pick out the colors. I am not sure if you can tell in the picture, but the blue is a blendy color.

The hoop is a 10 incher, so it is a nice size. And the time it took to embroider matches the larger size. In total, about 6 hours. Am I slow? I don't think so, but I do get distracted by everyone around me.

btw...the background fabric looks odd because it is wet. I used a water erase pen to draw out the design...and got too impatient to wait for it to dry to take a picture.

I liked it so much I went searching Peace Doves on Etsy and made a treasury blog post
