Lydia oh Lydia, say have you met Lydia,
Lydia, the Tattooed Lady.



She has eyes that folks adore so,


And a torso even more so.


She once swept an Admiral clear off his feet.
The ships on her hips made his heart skip a beat.


Okay, maybe you can't see the ships on her hips. But you get the gist of it!

This is probably the most colorful piece I've every stitched, and I'm really proud of it. She's made from the Circus Palooza pattern from Sew Lovely Embroidery. Most of the design was done with a simple backstitch, though I did improvise some stitching on the more delicate work. The beads I added for a touch of texture and sparkle, reminiscent of retro showgirl costumes.

Thanks for looking!
