Hi again everyone!

I wanted to share my second embroidery with you all. I am very excited about all of the possibilities with embroidery, since I have been doing basically only cross stitch my entire life. I still need to get a good pattern fabric pen, so I just freehanded this portrait of my cat Gato. Yes, his name really is Gato (lonnggg story) but when he's feeling fancy (or because he's gotten quite tubby over the years...) then he goes by Gateau.




My satin stitch isn't so great but I can't wait to keep working on it!

This is really good.  I've only done cross stitching until recently myself.  Good job on your first attempt branching out.  You did great!

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

Lovely, great character and I like your pun!

With regard to fabric pencils, I'd recommend the sewline fabric pencil - http://www.sewline-product.com/ it's a lovely retractable pencil that is perfect for embroidery as it runs smoothly along the fabric, not skipping like graphite ones, and the line is very clean, it doesn't colour the threads if you stitch through a line. I've had mine for about 6 months and I love it!
