Embroidery project: imitation is the sincerest form of flattery right?

A while back, I had an idea to take one of my sister's amazing images and transform it into embroidery. It was a neat experience because translating digital pen strokes with thread was difficult and resulted in lots of picking things out and trying again.

The photo below is my work (framed) and some of the work in progress shots.
