Absolutely! It can be altered in any way you just have to use the pattern in some form.

I have no where near enough experience in embroidery to get involved, but I will keep an eye on this post as I am intrigued to see what you all come up with!!
So much craftiness I want to try... maybe one day I will be able to get stuck in!!  Grin

Your stitching is so amazing-even just the pattern stitched up is good.

ahhh thanks!  I need to finish the hoops I am working on for a personal swap then I am going to get moving on this one.  Inspiration may still hit on a way to jazz it up!

I have 3 monkeys to finish and 2 white dresses for my May goals. If I finish those I can stitch up Miss Marilyn, for my sister of course. I doubt it will be anything exceptional but I must at least do it. Even without a chance of winning I still win because I get to make something for my Jennifart.

This was so much fun! I never would have embroidered something like this before! I love being challenged to try something new and push the envelope a little bit! My mind was blown!
