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'm almost always typing with one hand...

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....
