Hiya! I made this Dr Strangelove embroidery for one of my best friends birthday gift. (she hasnt received it yet, so dont tell her!) Since its her favorite movie, she mentioned before that she would like a Dr Strangelove embroidery based on the movie poster, but without the text. So, i did it! This one almost killed me though! I thought those damn planes were going to be the death of me...  And i also had a problem with the disappearing ink pen i used- ummm, it didnt disappear. Every time i sprayed it with water, the ink would go away at first but then reappear and spread. I was freaking out! I eventually got it all out......i think. Anyhow i am pretty happy with the end result. I hope she will be too.








And here is the poster i was working off of-


Thanks for checking out my work!

This looks amazing! Fantastic job.  Cheesy
I've had a similar experience with a "disappearing" pen. I prefer the blue ink that sponges off with water (e.g. Mark B Gone.)  Tongue

Thanks ladies!

I will have to try that Chinastarr. Yeah, needless to say, that ink pen went straight into the garbage!

That hoop looks great. Kudos on the satin stitching. Mine never looks that neat.Tongue

Why thank you!

Amalgam, i am not very good at the satin stitching either, but i figure the only way to get better at it is to keep doing it, right? Wink

Fantastic!  I love that movie, though for some reason I always forget about it when I'm talking about my favorites. 

I had that same problem with a blue "disappearing" pen on a project for a swap.  It almost had me in tears because I thought I was going to have to start over.  Eventually I got almost all of it off and gave up out of frustration.
