"Love Potion No. 9" Finished

This is the embroidery piece I started last year, all finished except for the hangers. I need to go to the the Home Depot to purchase a couple of nylon washers to add to the back. I used beads, sequins, gold “coins” and a tassel to enhance the Gypsy theme. I added four treasured vintage twinkle buttons from my collection, one in each corner. My favorite one, on the top left, is marked “Czechoslovakia” on the back. I had so much fun working on this - and those coins make the happiest clatter!
