My most recent embroidery.

Let me present to you... Beardman


I did this freehand, while referencing a similar doodle I did at work the other day.



As always, the frame is a faux wood rubber frame from Michael's.

and

here is a little glimpse at my doodle cloth for fun



Comments, criticism, beards, all welcome.

more pictures of the doodle cloth and other work on my flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/beckerh/

i love him! reminds me of the nursery rhyme -
There was an Old Man with a beard,
Who said, "It is just as I feared! --
Two Owls and a Hen, four Larks and a Wren,
Have all built their nests in my beard.

oooh how cool is he? I love the different techniques you use. And I love the frame. Way cool. I wish I would have time to figure out how to embroider. I know HOW but I suck at it. Tongue
