My latest in The Promise of Pills series.  I used cotton and rayon floss on a traditional linen tea towel.  The image is approx 10" by 4".  I have always loved the sleepy eye on Rx bottle stickers.  I blogged about it if you're interested in the idea behind it.  30 or more shades of floss.

I really envy your technique for filling with so many colors. I love that all of these end up looking like paintings.

Knitting goal for 2011: knit 500,000 stitches.  24,078/500,000 knit.  I think I'm going to need more yarn...

It took me about a week.  I stitch while watching tv or goofing around on the internet.  I'm not sure how many hours it took.  Certainly not as long as a cross stitch this size would take, but longer than plain satiin stitch.

Thanks for all the love!

Another one I love.  The stitching is amazing!!!

I think they need another sticker on meds that says, "may put you in a fog and may cause craziness for the duration of this prescription. Wink
