Thanks guys!  I'm glad everyone likes it.  Yes, it's my own design (well, my boyfriends design, I asked for a penguin and a tree and this is what I got!) and I just traced it with a pencil--which you can still kind of see, oops!  Anyway, I think I'm going to leave the penguin open, but it's just for fear of messing the whole thing up.  I'm definitely going to make another penguin embroidery with the crayon fill method and satin stitch method and see which one I like better.

Thanks again guys!  I'm glad you like it.  I figured, who doesn't like penguins, right?  Yay penguins!

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

This is really cute! I love the tree and the flowers are gorgeous. I think the penguin looks cute as is, no need to fill. Great job! Smiley
