Well OK, I love the eye of providence, but I'm not religious at all so I wouldn't want people to get the wrong idea by me wearing a masonic symbol.
I was making a skirt covered in yellow and green scraps, and decided to embroider this bird on it. With an ocular twist...

Ahhhh isn't it evil?
In fact, I'm so keen on the eye that I want to make a skirt covered with eyes. Although that'd be REALLY weird.

Freehanded pattern, made up directly on the fabric (I sketched it out first with laundry marker..I'll probably get one of those vanishing textas some time but they are a little expensive.)

I think a skirt with a bunch of eyes in some kind of pattern wouldn't make people think you are wearing a skirt with eyes. To the passing by viewer they would just see a pattern, but you would know they are eyes. I also love the lines in your embroidery. They are so thick and bold.

wow the bird is amazing and the colors are fantastic.  so cool that you just drew it up spur of the moment.  al lthe different stitches you used are great too.

This is cool. I love the eye on the birds breast, making it look like a natural marking. I think a skirt made with eyes would be awesome.

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