The nose ring and lips are wonderful! What do you plan to do with the finished peice?

I'm addicted to polyclay and beads right now. HELP!

Thank you!  I can't make up my mind.  I originally was planning to make it for my shop, but now I want to keep it.  I've considered finishing it in the hoop, or lacing it and framing it.  I was also inspired by something I saw from another needlework artist on etsy.  She made a wide scallop edge fabric applique around her embroidery and then hooped it.  I'm considering using some sari fabric from a pair of pants that got shredded in the wash.  (my husband was very apologetic, lol).   The fabric is a sheer pinkish goldish red.  I'm just not sure if it will behave with interfacing, so I'm thinking of trying it on some scrap fabric and see how it looks.

Here's a link to the applique idea that I found inspiring....

Keep it! This is so pretty, and a piece you learned new stitches on, so I think you should keep it in your collection.

I dream of a house covered with your art, and would love a personal swap. Pm me if you'd like to spread the crafty love! I also need blue fabric scraps for a scrap quilt!

I could see a wall of Hindu gods/goddesses if you could find complimentary patterns for them. Talk about awesome! Smiley

I love all of the different stitches you put together in this piece and the how well the colors mesh!

If we weren't all crazy we would go insane.

Gorgeous.  I say keep it and do some more Hindu deities.  I'd love to see a Ganesha in this style!

Yes, I agree on keeping it, hope you decide on making more gods/godesses.And we'll wait for the pretty picture of all youre pretty embroidered deities, (YAY!!!).   By the way what kind of fabric you used for the embroidery?
