Fur Children

New commissioned work.
I hand-embroidered this furry portrait for Amanda Fifield using a combination of stem and satin stitch. She sent me a photo of her beloved fur children and I worked from there. All up the stitching took between 6 and 7 hours. The sketching and prep work, however took a day. I stitched a few different colour samples to figure out shade and how to draw out the facial features amongst all the fur!

She was very pleased, in fact, I made her two.
Thanks for the patronage Amanda!
