Embroidered lotus

This is one of my favorite Vogart patterns. It's the second time I've embroidered it. This one is for a friend at work that I walk with every Wednesday at lunch (she made some pretty beaded jewelry for me last year). I painted an embroidery hoop and "framed" the piece in it.


You can't really tell from this photo (see below), but I used sparkly metallic thread to add some subtle highlights.
Well, the baseball game is about to start.

Ta ta for now,
Sylvie
