black embroidery floss on purple organza

This was my first attempt at embroidering transparent fabric.  It's a bit of a challenge to work clean since you can see any loose or tied off threads that are out of place.  I love how it turned out and it now graces the wall above my sewing machine.  I'm amassing a gallery of fantastically nerdy embroidery hoops.  I've done a lot of pen and ink and acrylic pieces in the past but have fallen head over heels for needle work.  It's portable, easy to abandon and pick back up (a very desirable craft quality for a mom) and I find it extremely cathartic.
