I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Carnies and embroidery- two things that frighten me. The original post can be found here: HP Craftalong

I think it's fantastic!

Cover the back with felt or fabric? TroubleT has a great tut on using felt!

I don't care what the back looks like -- the front is spectacular.

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

That is absolutely amazing. I agree, who cares about the back, just put some fabric over and call it good.

I love this. It reminds me of the sketchy illustrations in the early Tank Girl comics. So cool. The shading is neato, how did you do that?
Ludi has a great framing tutorial here. To hide dark thread on light fabric, back the work with a piece with dark fabric & they become much less visible.
What's happening with that cobweb of strands anyhow? Usually they get trimmed off right away. Maybe I have an idea about why you don't enjoy embroidery....

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO
