Well, my first foray into the world of embroidery was exciting and pretty successful if I don't say so myself. I finished the second two pictures for the gift for my grandmother. That is four pictures in five days. Not too shabby.
The third picture is below. I have also included a closeup of the hair because unlike the others, this girl's hair is colored in. I used two strands of a medium brown and one of a golden-mustard brown for a highlighted effect. It was the suggestion of one of my coworkers, and I think it came out really pretty.
The fourth and last picture was the simplest in my opinion, which was nice because I was getting a little tired of embroidery by this point.
So there you have it. Four retro-vibe pictures embroidered with three strands of floss throughout. The embroidery needle that came with the kit was the size of the tapestry needles I saw in JoAnn's, so not sure about that. Oh well.
