hey everybody! my sister finally got her gift yesterday so i can now post. it started because she and her hubby bought a house in st. louis and seeing as we're from texas, i thought that i should make them a housewarming gift that was texas-to-the-max so they wouldn't get homesick (she watches king of the hill every night before bed for this purpose as well). it started as a one week project but as i started outlining i decided it would look weird if i didn't fill it in so it ended up taking about 4 and a half weeks. oh well, i'm happy with the finished product, cheesy as it may be. i put a message on the back of the frame that reads, "Here's a little piece of Texas for your new Missouri home. May your beer always be cold and your lawn always green..."

the arlen gang, framed:

a close up of dale, whom i think i did the most justice:

hope y'all like it. thanks for lookin'!!

wow! you guys are quick! thanks for the compliments.
noelle, most of the stuff (like the fence & flag) are just a really looooong back stitch. the outlines are a short backstitch, and the clothes and flesh are mostly stem stitch with a little backstitch accidentally thrown in here and there. i'm not too experienced with embroidery so those are pretty much the only stitches i know. i kinda just made it up as i went along...
