Freeform paisley embroidery

Another little embroidery project. I sketched the design based on a paisley background design I found on a wine box, and used up various bits of embroidery thread that I already had.

    Oh how beautiful! I love embroidering and I love paisley, so this is like heaven for me :) I’d love to embroider something like that on a bag or pillow.

    Wow, not many people hand embroider anymore. Nice Job. I haven’t hand embroidered in quite some time. I think I’m cheating with my embroidery machine after seeing your work. Sooo worth the effort!

    Was this hand made? How did you do this? It is breathtakingly gorgeous.
