Intarsia and Embroidery - oh my!

This sample for Knit Picks was quite a challenge! I hadn't done any embroidery since I was a girl (now I remember why). The color work was a challenge, but what a change of pace from knitting a front, back and sleeves ....

Note to self: Break out of the mold and try something different!  It really gets the creative juices flowing and the brain working!

Thank you! Isn't it a great pillow? The embroidery: lt green veins in the large leaves small leaves on the brown swirls red, orange, turquoise and light green on the large flowers The knitting was the tan background with the yellow flowers, dark green leaves and dark brown swirls and outlines ... quite a challenge!
