"Embroidered Angel"

Up close and personal with the progress of my "Embroidered Angel".

I'm finding that with this medium, I am able to achieve the detail my heart desires! I looked up the word embroidery in the dictionary and this is what I found.

Embroidery = Embroidery is the art or handicraft of decorating fabric or other materials with needle and thread or yarn. Embroidery may also incorporate other materials such as metal strips, pearls, beads, quills, and sequins.

Tapestry = something that resembles a tapestry in its complex pictorial designs; a heavy textile with a woven design; used for curtains and upholstery, a wall hanging of heavy handwoven fabric with pictorial designs

It seems my work is a piece of embroidery..........not so much a tapestry, hey I learn something new everyday!
