So here are a few more of my latest stitches!

This one is for my step-sister, figured she'd like the colors haha I tried something new, the Whipping Stitch, or it called the Whipping Running stitch? Either way, I tried it, and I love that effect haha





This one is for my step-brother and wife (mainly wife), since they love their dog so much!





This one is for my mother-in-law, she's lived in a house with 3 boys for so long it's time for some girlie things to appear around the house! Haha






I'm slowly getting better, and I think embroidery is slowly turning into my favorite craft to do, next to painting! lol Cheesy


Any tips?? Huh

Thanks everyone! I'm going to frame them in picture frames that you can paint, so they can set them on their desk/table/etc.

Yes the tiki head is on a denium type fabric, but it's super thin and soft, I guess because it's old haha.

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