I thought it would be funny to make an ornate frame for tiny Weedle, from Pokemon. I used cross stitch for Weedle, satin stitch behind him, blackwork for the border, and then I added gold beads.
This is for the current challenge at Sprite Stitch- "Portraits."

The blackwork and beaded frame really make it pop!  Cheesy  That's a great piece!

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!

I think it would be cool to learn to do needlework with 8-bit pictures. Cheesy this is awesome!
