Ok so, First, be gentle this is quite literally the first type of needlework I have ever done and I did it without marking anything just looking at the picture and and just kinda... doing it lol. My mom gave me two entire Ziploc full of floss, and hoops and such from her old stash that she never uses because of her arthritis. Anywho i've had it in my mind for some reason my brother needs a needled pic of his hero for Christmas so without further ado I give you Conan O' brien
P.S. Also I added the color afterward because I mentioned I had no tracing and also didn't think it would turn out at all but still I think he'll like it.



Now all he needs is a frame. Smiley

ETA: He is done in Split Stitch and French knots for the eyes and freckles

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

Haha, I used that same Conan picture for one of my first embroidery projects!
I stitched him on a onesie while I was pregnant with my son (he's 3 now).

Of course now I can't find a picture of it anywhere... I will post it if I can find it.

That's such a cute picture! Your stitching and color tinting look great for your first time! I can't believe you didn't use a pattern, you're so brave!
