*this rocks* Great job on the satin stitch and I loved the solution for the flesh tone, it looks great!

She's too pure for the likes of this world, this world is a whore.

A smile to hide the fear away, Oh smear this man across the walls, like strawberries and cream, it's the only way to be.

I wish I could finally learn satin stitch! Mine still always looks all wonky. This is gorgeous, though! Great job! And the color variegation is beautiful!

Thanks for inspiring me to try again. Smiley

Thanks everyone for your kind comments Smiley
Learning satin stitch was exciting for me.  I have had issues with spatial learning my whole life (apparently common with my MBI personality type).  Figuring out different embroidery stitches can be a challenge because I cannot visualize how it should go.  Illustrations that say "up at 1, down at 2, up at 3, etc" are SO helpful, but dont always do the trick.  I NEED to know how the BACK looks. I cant mentally picture how the thread travels sometimes.
It sounds silly, I know, but Jenny Hart's simple phrase in Embroidered Effects "the back will look like the front" made it "click" for me.
So I may never be able to solve a rubiks cube, but dammit I can now do some proper fill stitching!  Grin Grin

Beautiful work, I am in awe of your skills, and I love the sentiment (although I think this would deem just about everything I do to be useless  Cheesy)
