i'd been interested in doing portraiture and using embroidery as an art medium for a while.  this is my first attempt:



it's my best friend from college and his lovely dog peanut on the day he and his boyfriend were evicted from their house, which also happened to be new year's eve.

things are going much better for him right now.

That is very cool.  I have been wanting to try something like that for ages, but I am not sure that I am competent enough to know how to simplify an image enough to make it embroiderable.  Wonderful!
