I like Mr. T.  I like embroidery.  I like buying old pillowcases.  This is the result.






Used stem stitch, backstitch, straight stitch, chain stitch, and satin stitch. 1 & 2 strands. Hoop is 6" diameter.
The design is from an A-Team coloring page that I found online.

This is my most unusual and detailed piece so far, usually I'm a cutesy and simple kind of gal so I had fun with this.
Criticism and comments are appreciated.

Wow.  None of my projects have ever "rocked" before.  Some people don't quite get it, but I knew my Craftster peeps would.  Grin  Thanks!

I love the contrast between the flowery background and the mean-looking Mr T!  Really striking and original.
