I keep coming back to stare at the lovely lady, and can't help but wonder:  I know it's a doodle and all, but would you be open to sharing the line drawing?  I'd love to try my hand at this same patter - or similar, and am not so confident in my doodles right now.

Again, she's gorgeous!

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

I have a question, for you satin stitch you outlined it. Did you do your fill first or your outline?  I've thought about outlining my satin stitch but I never know if I should do it before or after.  Thanks! She is beautiful.

rubylynns--Thanks! I did the fill first, then the outline. That's what Jenny Hart recommended, so that's what I did! Smiley Here are her instructions: http://www.sublimestitching.com/satinstitch.html

It's so cool! What a great use of satin stitching, and such very good stitching. I'm glad you decided to use all that color--it's just right for this piece!

This is awesome!  I really like that the outlines are different colors than the satin stitches.  It helps to give it a lot of depth!
