I was recently commissioned to embroider a passage from Warhammer 40K lore. It's definitely not the most uplifting thing I've ever embroidered, ha!
That being said, I love mixing delicate embroidery with strange and dark subject matter, so I was all over this. :D
I completed this piece little by little over the course of a week. I'd say it took about 15 hours - a bit quicker than I thought it would be. I satin stitched the first letter of each paragraph and then did the text in three strands of black embroidery floss. It took almost a whole skein of embroidery floss to finish it!

I've also got an ible posted about the basics of embroidery.
I'm always accepting orders in my etsy shop, making jiggy.
I have lots of pieces, but I also love doing custom work. :D
