Embroidery, 2 years in the making.

and I to embroider these way back September of 2011. I finished the last design a while ago, but I never had a chance to do a family portrait in the same style as BambooDog because of the huge amount of thread colors. That has now been rectified, and the result is here. Obviously, based upon the originator of the heart ponies, BambooDog and done with permission.
