holy heck brook you might not believe this but I have that girl on my computer -image all cleaned up and set up to make a transfer pattern out of -she was my next on my list.  When I saw her in the preview banner and was like who stitched my girl!?  But it's okay 'cause well you rocked it Wink so I'll let it slide Cheesy

I hadn't set up the transfer yet because I wanted to work in a banner (something along the lines of "Whatcha got cookin'") and I've been at odds with her looking over her shoulder...

I'm wondering what the scale is because it looks much bigger than I would have attempted but I really love how it allows the details of her face to be totally stitched.  the whole thing is amazing Wink  Great work and I love how it is finished!
