Embroidery 101

New hobby! A little bit of geeky decoration for Juan's new office (the NERV logo from one of our all time favourite animes: Neon Genesis Evangelion).

So many problems :( Gaps between stitches, hard to keep straight lines and arrrgh the small lettering!!! Gotta start somewhere ...
And ooooh lookie the back hahaha As you can see I started out with proper satin stitch but then got all stingy with the thread and made it up as I went along. Also the random long stitches in the half-leaf? That was me trying unsuccessfully to fill in some gaps at the end ...

This piece was mainly just to learn a bit about basic stitches, I have very different plans for my next embroidery project!
