Return to Embroidery Experimenting

I am waiting for some wooden figures to dry and thought I would have another go at an under painted image with free machine embroidered detail. I took the image from a vintage birthday card and ended up with this! I think this is the progeny of a recent visit to the Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore. (Which has the best museum gift shop in the world!)

For some inexplicable reason I have made this one into a large cushion.

The original card.

I love how cross the queen looks. perhaps it's the stress of the forthcoming jubilee!
