embroidered initials

As a Christmas gift for two little girls in our family, I decided to embroider their initials using some of the skills I've picked up from reading Jenny Hart's Embroidered Effects.
Using a stencil, I traced each initial onto a piece of fabric and embroidered it using a simple split stitch. 

I framed each one in an embroidery hoop, and finished the back following this tutorial. I'm really happy with the results, and am looking forward to taking on more advanced projects.
