This is the first project I've posted in years and years (not that I stopped crafting, just got lax on the project posting) but I was so proud of how this turned out that I had to show my fellow crafters.

This is my first ever finished embroidery piece.  It is, of course, Audrey 2 from Little Shop of Horrors.  It took me forever (especially since now I have a doggie and he likes to try and eat the thread).  But now I can't wait to do another.


My favorite detail is the metallic red thread in the pools of blood to make it glisten!

Feed Me, Seymour!


P.S. I traced the shape from an illustration but the colors and detailing are mine!

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Nice work, I love it. Man I'd kill to get something like that but most of my friends aren't too crafty.

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!
