I angeled for tattooedcrafter in the Embroidery Hoopla Round 5 swap. After a bit of research, I made this for her.


This was done mostly in split stitch with backstitching to make the outlines and running stitches to fill in the tiny spots. The hill is a mix of white, pale gray, and white metallic threads. The (hard to see) icicles were done in silver metallic thread. The moon is white with yellow metallic thread. I decided to do Jack and Sally in black silhouette.


Sorry for the blur. My digital camera isn't the best with close-ups. Tongue But at least you can see some of the sparkle this way. The silhouettes only look remotely like Jack and Sally. I think if I had done this as a larger picture, I could have done a better rendering, but if you've seen the movie, you know who they have to be. Overall, I'm satisfied with my work and tattooedcrafter likes it, so I'm happy. Smiley

The icicles glisten, even in the photos.

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