Borrowing more patterns from

http://albumsdantan.canalblog.com/

I've whipped up this doozy of a pillow.  A classy French pimp escorts six fine, upstanding young ladies.  Metallic gold floss brings attention to the difficulties of the man's line of work.

It's light blue 14 count aida with one strand.  I've got the pattern around here somewhere if someone wants it.


I was worried that the girls would appear too small and, therefore, too young.  The original pattern is supposed to be girls following a schoolmarm.  I think it turned out alright and thus I have avoided looking like a creep.


Le border and signature.  The date is in the opposite corner.  I'm not too happy with the border.  Too Christmasy; but it's only my fault for using DMC 699 (Xmas green) and DMC 666 (Xmas red).


The man himself.  After trying variants of the jacket's color scheme, I decided to go with various shades of green.  Now that I look at it, I think I should have outlined the figures, too.  Oh well.

Tell me what you think!

I absolutely love this. I think it's great when people take classic needlework patterns and put funny sayings on them. Pimpin' ain't easy!!  Grin

Don't be too critical of yourself, I think it is wonderful as is!  Very creative and well stitched.
