Supernatural is a new obsession of mine, especially Castiel.
and while I'm in the planning stages of a Supernatural Quilt, I thought I'd do some embroidery to pass the time.



I think I will make a Dean Winchester one, so they can hang side by side on my wall. <3

Oh how cute! His hair is stunning! Did you use a variegated thread or several different shades of brown?

Thanks!!  I used 3 different shades of brown. I start with the darkest and block in his hair, then fill in the gaps with the middle shade, and then add some highlights with the lightest.  I've found it easier to control the look that way.

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

Thank you! stitching hair is one of my favorite things!   and I'm thinking about going back and using a darker gray to define the feathers a bit more... we'll see.

I recognized Cas right off from the little preview picture!  AWESOME work!
His hair is so fantastic, plus all of the texture in the wings along with the trench coat stitching... it really works!

I can't wait to see how your Supernatural quilt comes out, it's such a great show.

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!
