Hand Embroidery on Bed spread

Embroidering a bed spread has been on my to-do list for a very long time. I did this one in 2011.
I got a plain bedspread from Landmark, Spencer Plaza, Chennai and I chose this design from my long time collection of embroidery designs. I picked by pastel colors from anchor embroidery threads to go with the brown color of the bed spread. I have used satin stitch for the letters and flowers, stem stitch for the stem and french knot for some flowers.

No prizes for guessing what the letters G and P stand for. Of course they are my husband's and my name's first letters :-)

I did not want to leave the pillows empty. So decided on this pattern and did 3 rows of chain stitch.
