I made a young Vincent Price portrait for one of my newest craftster friends in the hoopla swap!

Here is a picture of the pattern being transferred in pencil. I hold the hoop down over the fabric to keep it from shifting.


It's stitched with mostly 2 strands of floss to keep it pretty detailed, but I can't keep my stitches neat & tidy for the life of me. Ah well.

I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

Before Halloween I contacted some fellow stitchers about doing a Vincent Price stitchalong. If there's any interest, I'll upload the pattern & give it it's own post. The stitchalong pattern is from my own drawing of an older Vincent & I'm willing to share.
I'd love to see what others do with it.
