Leda and the Swan

Leda and the Swan

This is an embroidery I was playing around with a few months ago.  It's technically finished I guess, but there is something about it I am not quite happy with.  I think I'll rework another one with 2 strands of floss so the lines are a bit more delicate. 

I might refine the pattern and offer it for sale.

I like the couched swan feathers.  It was hard to decide how to work the feathers. Swans always look so smooth, but I didn't want him to be satin stitched..
