Some time ago I posted two cross-stitched pieces I did of one of my drawings:
(http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=319371.msg3679195#msg3679195)

I deceided to embroider the drawing as well Smiley.

Here's the piece framed. I don't have a pic without the frame so I'm sorry for the quality and flashlight reflected on the pic Wink



And this is a close-up. Again, apologies for the quality Wink



I used split stitch for the outlines of the hair and face and backstitch for the inside of the face and filling of the hair. It took me a few months but I really liked doing it. I framed the cross-stitched ones as well and am going to hang them on my living room wall soon Smiley

Thanks for looking Smiley

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