This is everything I've completed since my first embroidery, found here
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=356614.msg4176075#msg4176075

First up, for the 3rd package on the Make a Friend swap I embroidered the logo for the roller derby league my new friend is a part of. I had a hard time on the face on the face and the skates. Meh, I'm learning.



For the latest odd holiday swap (September) I embroidered some mushrooms on an apron for Mushroom month:

I don't know if I did so many French knots because I like them or if I told myself I would like them because I had already planned it that way.

And this is one of the things I made for Punctuation Day next month. It was a lot of fun!


And for my pen pal (whom I met through Post Secret) I made a very simple negative space dragonfly!


And I'm almost done with something for another swap I'm in but I can't post pics yet because I can't! AH! I like it, though. Be expecting something new (and totally awesome if I don't mess it up completely) from me in a few weeks!

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

You did a great job. Faces are always the hardest. I agree, I think the roller derby girl is my fav.
