So I planned on doing six of these....but time is not my friend. Will post the remaining three when I finish them... Tongue

These were given to family as presents this Christmas. Calender blanks purchased from SeptemberHouse on Etsy.

This one is Da Vinci's Head of a Young Woman. Flesh colored floss - 2 strands on cream/natural cotton.




This one is Dali's Persistence of Memory - I have always loved the melty clocks Smiley This one is 2 strand for most of it but a couple of spots I used all 6 strands. Colored in some parts with colored pencil and ironed it in.



And my absolute fav - I LOVE Van Gogh. LOVE. This is Van Gogh's Bedroom. Two strands of floss on cotton.





Let me know what y'all think  Wink

 Wink I don't officially know how to "embroider" but I figured I winged it enough that it looks decent.

I bought myself and a friend one for Christmas and haven't even started mine!  You've inspired me to get going.  Yours are amazing!
