Thank you so much for the encouraging words, :hug:
 your work is an amazing symphony of beautifully observed detail,
I could write a whole essay on how entranced i am with the way you have captured the muscle tension in the hand holding the needle,
If i practice for a life time and only produce one painting half as well done as your work i shall conciser it time well spent.

Beautiful and serene. 

There is something soothing about watching someone at needlework.  As a needleworker myself, I love the quiet in this piece, the concentration in her face.  She's in a place where craft and art intersect.

You wouldn't happen to know what she's working on?

Congratulations on your DD!

Thank you. I'm glad it had such a positive impact and left an impression on you :) No sorry, I can;t seem to recall specifically since the photo I took of the girl at the time was a few years back during one of my visits to Mongolia.
