I mostly do cross-stitch but a while ago I decided to give embroidery a try. I wanted to surprise my sister (yet again Wink ) with embroidery and I chose to make a project out of one of her drawings. She doodles these "godesses" all the time and I really love them!

So, here's the finished project:



I framed the artwork but don't have pictures of that.

I used back-stitch only, since I am just a beginner, but I'm going to learn some new stitches so I can embroider some more.  It's not exactly like the drawing since I messed up sometimes, but I guess it's not really noticable.

It was really fun to do!

That's so sweet of you!  And nice work, I like it, very good flow going on.

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.

That looks great.  Good job with a new medium.  I wish I could doodle like that.

I have boxes of vintage piano music.  Some as old as 1890's!  PM me if you'd like some!

Both the embroidery and the "doodle" (I wish I could doodle like this, I'd be embroidering my own doodles like mad!) are very pretty! I bet she'll be very happy, it's a wonderful surprise.

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

You and your sister are really talented in different departments! Maybe if you got some direction from her you could color her drawings? Since they're black and white when she draws them, I'm not sure what she sees in her head.

Captain Hook would have been a great crocheter, no?
