My swap buddy has received, so I can post this now.  

This project also involved bookbinding and stuff, but I figured the embroidery was the more interesting part, so tada. Smiley

It was all freehanded, and none of it really planned, except that I sketched the skull on paper first.  It's almost all the same stitch.  I THINK it's called stem stitch, but I'm not certain.  There's a little satin stitch on the skull, that's about it.

I burned the edges (THAT was a little scary.  Cotton burns way more easily than I expected) and then modpodged it to the cover of the swap journal I'd made.

Here are some pictures of the inside pages, just for fun.

Human rights are for EVERYONE.  Did you know that Aung San Suu Kyi had been released from house arrest in Burma? Many other prisoners of conscience are still being detained.  Please research this topic... Amnesty International needs your help.
