Memento Mori in Eden

Here is a work in progress. It is to be a garden of Eden themed pillow. I will probably put skeletons in for Adam and Eve. I find skeleton embroideries to be very popular. The tree is all done in long and short stitch over chain stitch. Now I am adding some stylized leaves and flowers before I move on to the twisty old serpent. This is done on a recycled ground of creamy knit acrylic fabric. It is very soft and fuzzy.
