Embroidered Initial

From my last class.....The embroidered letter "D".
Sent to me by a student who finished her guest towel.

(you can find a similar design in my Jeannie B. Embroidery Book too)
First you Featherstitch the initial, then you add flowers until it looks real pretty!

Another "D" from my Child Health Alphabet book. 
circa 1918
