Stitches 'n' Hoes

Done as a tribute, started this yesterday and finished the lines on the hair today.



All in backstitch, considered colouring in the hair but I like it as an outline.

Nice! I like how you did the hair, making it not a complete outline but more of a suggested one.

I looove this! I would hang it on my wall. I've been thinking of things to make as a tribute but i'm not that great at embroidering. I don't think I could do it as well as you did. So I'll have think of something else.

Just beautiful, and very touching. You work amazingly fast! I think it's perfect as is, especially the hair, and I wouldn't add another stitch.

WOW. I am so blown away by this. It's absolutely gorgeous, and like everyone else, I love how you did the hair, but I think my favourite part is the collar. I think you handled the way a collar creases really well. I think it's one of those things where I would miss that line of wrinkle coming 'forward' and it would always look weird to me, but you didn't miss it so I'm blown away. Awesome job!!!
