I wanted to do something a little different for this portrait of Wednesday (Classic TV swap), so I couched down some black yarn, and left it loose so I could have it hang down in braids. I really like the effect!



It was my own original image, embroidered on some lightly rose patterned white cotton, using 3, 2, and 1 strands of floss, and thread for the shading on the eyes.



The pattern on her frock is a series of free-handed X's, done like cross stitch. There is probably an easier way to do this, but I think it looks pretty cool.



Thanks for looking!

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