Ya know, I used to really HATE skulls on things.  I have been slowly coming to like these sugar skulls, and yours just may have won me over.  That is absolutely beautiful!  Are you going to make it into something, or just frame it?

I used to feel the same way about those skulls, but this one charmed me. I am going to frame it in something ornate and Spanish-styled...as soon as I can find it cheap!  Grin

The skull itself  took probably 8-12 hours of stitching.  The roses took twice that long, because of all the color combinations. I would start a color then rip it out if I didn't think it worked with the other colors in that particular flower.

Thank you all for the lovely compliments!
