Hopefully I spelled that right! I have really busted my butt to get this in under the wire! I realize its not super complicated or tons of different stitches, but trust me with a 4 year old, a 1 year old and a new puppy under foot it felt like it took me years to finish this! I'm pretty proud of it as I FINALLY learned how to do french knots (the cherries, they weren't even hard! I don't know why it took me so long!)  and also I HATE HATE HATE lettering, so I'm pretty stoked it came out so well. I'm not sure how I want to finish it. I had originally wanted to add a border but nixed it for times sake, and I'm not so sure I do want one now. Also she is faceless to add to the 'I could be any woman" feel she has. I'm not sure if I want to stretch it like a canvas or frame it. What do you think? Also what are your thoughts on her hair? should I take it out and do it a solid color? OK enough babble on to pictures!

her cute toes and a french knot!


her hair


One last thing, I can't seem to get the ink that is supposed to disappear out. Any tips?
ALSO I wanted to give props to the fattie revolution group Cupcake Cuties for the inspiration/ stolen (lol) wicked cute cupcake flowers

I totally love the design.  Did you create it?  I would leave the hair as it is.  I love the multiple tones Smiley

I LOVE it. I think I needs to be framed with out glass and a little stuffing behind it.
I love her. Did you draw her yourself? My belly (after two babies) looks just like that!!
