Well, here's the story:

I was really bored the other night, so I picked my needles up again (for the first time in a long time) and got down to some freehand embroidery.

I had no idea what I was going to stitch, and I guess I've had Jellyfish on the brain.

The embroidery floss is the kind that fades from light to dark, which is how I got the nifty shading.

enjoy. (i did)

That looks great. What stitch did you use? I love jelly fish especially when they can't sting me.

I was also wondering what stitch you used and what the back looks like?

I used a backstitch or split stitch, and then on the pink tendrils I used a satan stitch.

The back looks much like the front, however it is made up of tiny dots. Unlike past embroideries of mine, I tried to be very clean with the back.  sorry, I don't have a picture. Thanks for checking it out!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

How many strands of the floss do you use?  Your stitching looks nice and full.

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.

I only used 2 strands, of very cheap "value pack" floss.  I'm kinda a new at the embroidery thing.  This project was my 3rd try at it.
