Arizona Embroidery Pattern

I have a new embroidery pattern set in my shop.  This one is all about the wonderful state of Arizona.

I really enjoyed drawing the motifs for this one - Arizona has so many interesting features that are perfect for hand embroidering. 

Here is a look at the pattern set :

My first work in progress is this "Arizona" text surrounded by a paddle or prickly pear cactus and a western diamondback rattlesnake.  

These vintage postcards have really been an inspiration!
