I'm glad you like her, sazzra (and everyone else!)! Smiley

I tried out a whole bunch of new stitches, since this site has so many: http://handembroiderynetwork.blogspot.com/search/label/Stitch%20A%20Day

If you scroll down the page, along the left hand side is a huge list of all kinds of tutorials for different stitches.  The fishnet looking stitch that I used along the doll's sides was the wave filling, which went quickly and was a lot of fun to do Smiley 
http://handembroiderynetwork.blogspot.com/2009/11/stitch-day-wave-filling.html 

Here's a picture that I took of her before I sent, not sure if it's any better.  And a closeup of her face.  I used some pretty cloud fabric that I had:



And I sortof made up a way to finish the back, because the other tutorials seemed awfully complicated  Tongue  Basically, I stitch along the extra fabric around the hoop, and pull it tight like a drawstring.  Then I cut a circle of felt the same size as the hoop, and blanket stitched it on.  Not sure if that was clear, but this was from the hoop I sent last round:

I am so relieved! I was so worried the fabric would come out of the hoop in shipment and then you'd see I didn't do stitching very far past the borders of the hoop, lol! I'm glad you like it, MizzKodak! And thanks all! This was my first time succeeding with satin stitch! I think it's because I finally learned that you do your satin stitching BEFORE your outline stitching. Every other time I tried I was doing it backwards!
