Pegasus Embroidery

I call it Pegasus Dreams of Cupcakes. This is my latest contribution to our International Tea Towel Tour:
Pegasus Dreams of Cupcakes

It's for Sewsew-a-gogo's 4-year old daughter who likes monsters and baking. I hope she also likes green horses with luxuriant purple hair and pink wings. In case you were wondering, I do all chain stitching with 2 strands of embroidery floss. I think I did a very small amount of back stitches on the nose and there are just a few french knots.

The pattern is available HERE with a Pegasus from Andrea Zuill. I added the cupcake.

Ah Susie! It's very sweet - and I love how it's on a checked background! Lovely!

That's beautiful Susie. I'm discovering how much fun embroidery can be and yesterday I learnt 2 new stitches; the fly and the feather stitch. I hope to learn a few more :-) I love your embroidery.

Oh, I love the colors you used! And, adding the cupcake was a great idea!
