Embroidery of nature images

I have been doing embroidery again. Love it so much.

I ordered some wonderful floss onlines from Needle in a Haystack and Colour Complements, and I bought some perle cottons locally from The Needle Loft in Royston.



The drawing is a copyright free stock image. The colours are based on a photo of a deer in our yard that I edited to increase the chroma.
