Made my own first embroidery

(small photo eeek!) I drew the head of a deer then looked for and embroid the lines with a back stitch. After looking for ways to make some roses (which I embroid in 3 colours) I've found the deer had to be filled so just filled it with what I think is a satin stitch.
I wanted to use the Tolkien quote for a while now so thought it would fit the embroidery. Below I've embroid the translation of the quote in my Mother tongue : South African. By the way is the past tense of embroid: embroid?


It took me a while to finish this, not because it was difficult but because I didn't have enough chocolate zpagetti.  After searching for a while had some luck and then found it! Ok but then I was all out of my zpagetti mode so chucked it in the corner. It is finished now and I'm happy with the way it turned out.
