i made this clockwork embroidery for my swap partner in the OWS 66 swap. i was a little nervous because ladies are cranking out some really great stuff in there, but i really like how it came out.

I really love this image from Clockwork Orange and I really like your embroidery rendition of it. Did you use tinting for the hat? If you did- that is the most even tinting I've seen!! Great job.

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