Hello All,

I'm a long-time lurker, first time poster. Recently I've been stealing minutes away from my homework to finish this project based on one of my doodles.  My plan is to finish a series of (9) doodle-based embroidery pieces (working from designs created by both myself and my boyfriend) to create an exciting mock-headboard in our bedroom.

I used a back-stitch for most of the image, with some seed-stitching here and there.  When I was done, I stapled it over 12" canvas stretchers for easy wall hanging.

The colors are a bit washed out in the photos.







Thanks for looking.    Wink

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I like this a lot! I'm just thinking now about doing doodle stitching on a jacket, and you've got a great style.

Anyone have a couple extra felting needles? I'll trade for them!

Thanks so much the compliment. And I think doodle stitching on a jacket would look really sharp!
