Moon Moth Embroidery [A Finish]

So this was all but a finish about 6 weeks ago... I had most of the embroidery done last quarter and it only took a further evening of sewing on the sofa to get it done. And then I left it for five weeks. And it was only this week, in my drive to finish stuff up before the end of my maternity leave, that I finally got round to framing it in a hoop. It took about 10 minutes!

This is the final of three panels, two of which I finished earlier in the year.

But I enjoyed sewing these so much, that I've ordered another four panels to stitch up next. Two unicorns, a fox and some Sloths. All the patterns are by Aimee Ray, Littledear on Etsy. All of the embroidery is done by hand in DMC threads - a mix of 2 and 3 strands. I used stem stitch rather than the split stitch that Aimee instructs, as my stem stitch is far, far neater than my split stitch. But there's also satin stitch and backstitch included. I think the moon moth may be my favourite so far!

This is a Finish Along finish. You can find my original list here.
