My jaw dropped. I thought you were going to enhance the printed fabric. Silly me. When you say you are going to embroider a lady, you MEAN it! She is too beautiful for words, as is our marvelous talent.

WOW!!! Such wonderful evidence of your amazing talent! And ~ I had no idea this work was so small! That makes it even more impressive. I think there's nothing you can't do with those needles and thread.
