You did a beautiful job!  Nice job improvising as well, you made the pattern your own.

Oh thank you for the offer Lisalady! 

I'm just being cheap with my floss. Smiley  I too like the way things look using 6 strands, but I hate running out of my colors before I'm done with a project so I usually keep it to 3.

So how do you determine how many strands (when using 6 strand floss) to use in a project?

Is it all based on the pattern, detail or just personal preference?

I usually use 3 strands because I don't like to go through floss that fast, but I'm working on a project now that calls for all 6 strands.  I love the look, but it kills me to go through so much floss.

Here's my take on the floral fantasy totebag.  I absolutely loved the pattern and bought two.  This is the first one, I hope to start on the second soon.  There are several things I would do differently, but overall I'm happy with how it turned out.  I actually made this as a gift for a friend and tried to matched the hair and eye color to hers.

I really like your beardman. 

Your doodle cloth is great!  I am hopeless at french knots, but I love the look of them Your knot clusters are so awesome that it inspires me to keep practicing.  Smiley

I can only echo everyone's comments here.  Not only is your stitching immaculate, but just the drawing of this is fantastic!

What a unique and beautifully stitched piece!  Thank goodness I took the batteries out of my biological clock long ago.  Cheesy

This is so cute!  You could do a total 80's cartoon theme with Pound Puppies, Smurfs, Snorks, Strawberry Shortcake, etc.

Nice work, I especially love the colors you chose.  The swallow pattern is pretty sweet.
