I promised myself at the end of last year that I would stitch up something for myself for my Hoopla wall. Then, I had to decide what I wanted. LOL

This is the design I chose...or rather it chose me. I found it while doing some pattern research for a birthday swap and it has bugged me for 3 months saying "Now, stitch me up! NOW!"

Here's my birthday present to myself. It's Buddha with a lotus flower. I love the fact that the Buddha is one continuous line with all of the loops and whirls. Smiley

(I was having some picture issues. Just fixed it. Smiley )

Hmmm....I think my pseudo dad has a tattoo just like that.

It makes a great embroidery. Great job stitching it up.

Gorgeous! First word that popped into my head: smooooth.

Second: peace.

I think you succeded in not just depicting the subject but setting a tone to match, as well. Kudos!
