Tom Selleck is so dreamy!
I love my magnum!

He fits into a 6 inch hoop and was stitched w/ backstitch for the outline and a bastardized version of long and short stitch for fill in. I want to say it took approx a week.

I tried to get a red that had the same feel as the ferrari from the show.

As Mr. Magnum came to life I would catch myself giggling at his winning smile.

Hope you do to,
Thanks for looking!

He's instantly recognisable, good job.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

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

Oh man! I can't believe this beauty isn't getting the respect it should!
It's fantastic! Perfect fill in, wonderful subject, it's a winner!
It's also especially awesome to me; I'm rewatching the series "Friends" as my 'watch-as-I-embroider-show'
and Monica's dating Tom Selleck right now : )!
