Here are two of the things I made for the POTC swap, cross stitch Jack portrait from the 2007 Cross Stitcher Magazine and a needlebook. The portrait was a little hard to do because of all the shades of brown. I kept my highlighter handy.




The skull is from one of those Disney mini kits. I used this tutorial to make it because I've never made a needlebook before: http://meari.blogspot.com/2007/06/needlebook-instructions.html



Fortunately, I went on a roadtrip which allowed me the time to finish stitching these projects. I hope to make another Jack Portrait for myself. I really liked how it turned out.

Awesome stitching!
I can imagine that the portrait was a bit of a challenge with all that shades of brown in it.
They both look perfect.

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

I must have missed that issue - this is AMAZING. I love the multi-browns too
