I'm really loving this embroidery thing... maybe I shouldn't say that I'm new to it anymore....but really, its only been 3-4 months, which isn't long....anyway... I did this tree man over the weekend..... pattern was from urbanthreads ... and I am pretty pleased with the way it turned out..... done in a 6 inch hoop, and 3 strands of DMC, mostly backstitch, and a bit of satin/fill stitch for the eyes...



and a bit closer....



and the entire hoop....



I am going to put it in a different hoop .......finish the back ..... and hang it on my HOOPLA WALL....
thanks for looking, would love to hear what you think....

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

Love this! I'm going to look for this pattern on urban threads (don't you just love that website?). You did a really good job choosing the colours, this project = awesome

This makes me wish I knew how to embroider. It's so pretty and perfect for this time of year.
