hand-embroidered insect napkins, hot off the... hoop?

Nancy Ustach, mom to one of the brides registered with gleena, saw the insect platter gifted to her daughter, and was inspired to embroider napkins to match. I know nothing about embroidery, and it was fun to see the small embroidery hoop imprint around each illustration. Now I get the process...

All the embroidered insects are wonderful, but the hummingbird moth is my favorite. This simple touch adds so much personality to a traditional napkin.
