Flickr's recent weird downtime for groups & sets isn't going to allow me to link to the transfers I used, but I put a link to what I think is the right page in my most recent blog post ( http://www.whatmegmakes.com/?p=798 ) about these projects -- because I know you'll ask!



It only took me a few hours to finish Ms. Hottie, she's my first embroidery project in years!  She's about 7 inches tall on a tea towel.



Here's a photo of her in progress...



& I loved the series so much I've started another tea towel!

Head over to my blog for larger photos, just click on them in the post for the larger versions.

Thanks for all the nice comments!

Especially about the satin stitch... I hate hate hate hate hate satin stitch, both doing it & how it looks from person to person.  I dislike the edges of it a lot of the time (on my work & others,) so I always plan to line it with a backstitch. 

It's just one of those things Cheesy
