I've been doing embroidery pieces of horror movie stuff for a while and a while ago, I did a small portrait of Pennywise from Stephen King's "It" in a 4" frame, but I always thought I needed to do a bigger and creepier version (not that that freaking clown can get any creepier). Turns out that bigger also meant way more turkey stitch than I originally thought (this hairstyle took two full skeins of floss - every time I do something in turkey stitch, I hate how long it takes, but then I love to be able to pet it when it's done)

Wonderful. I love Pennywise! And I was just wondering today what that stitch is called. I did a fluffy bumble bee with it. Years ago. And still have it! I will be shareing my hoopla-s soon. And I am back into planning them for my "off" times of being able to stitch. I have some from back when I was just a kid.

I found a neat piece of junk mail today. If I trace it and steal the outlines, and embroider it. {Wonderful Swirly Tree} is that stealing? I really love the aspect of the design. I will change it up a bit, it is my "Tree of Life" Hoopla.
I always wonder what crosses the line from inspiration to theft. But this tree is really neat, and perfectly fits a 6" hoop. I will add beads and other words for it. PM if you wish to share thoughts on this subject. I always feel guilty when I copy.
