Aside from some cross stitch on plastic canvas as a kid, I've never really tried needlework before. But a while back I came across these amazing embroidered portraits and was super inspired to try it out. I like how the artist used the floss like Van Gogh uses paint so I tried for a similar effect. My little chickadee isn't anywhere close to Daniel Kornrumpf's portraits, but I think he's cute anyways. Smiley

That is great! He is very cute and your embroidery skills are very impressive for a beginner. The colour variations are very nice.

I can't believe that is your first embroidery! You are a natural. It is so pretty and the textures are wonderful.
