I made this for Troublet for the February Bday swap, since she's a Spanish teacher. This is my first ever embroidery!



It's Peggy Hill from the show King of the Hill. She's a substitute Spanish teacher, and her Spanish is terrible! She doesn't particularly understand it or pronounce it even remotely correctly. That's why I spelled out the phrase En Espanol por favor the way she says it phonetically. She even pronounces "favor" the way you would say "can you do me a favor?" I really loved doing it. I think embroidery is going to be my new favorite craft!

I actually did it kind of backwards. I did the backstitch outline first, and then did satin stitch for her hair and shirt, and a tiny bit on her lips and glasses. Satin stitch is what you use for those big colored areas, lilfighter00. I just used the online tuts at Sublime Stitching, I think, to figure out how to do the satin stitch, and to give me a refresher on backstitch.

This is a compliment I normally reserve for Peggy's brown betty, but that is just handsome.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
