I finally completed this piece last night after picking it up and putting in down for a few months. i had ripped this image out of a music magazine a while ago thinking it would make a lovely embroidery. i think it is the cover art on an album from a band i have never heard of. i was wishing i had picked a different fabric though, this one was a little too loosely woven, and it was kind of pulling and making holes, oh well. i'm still proud of how it turned out.

This is beautiful!  I love how the different number of strands used translates into tones.
