I'm still on this embroidery kick. The more I do it the more I LOVE it. I think one of the things I like best about it is that when I do portraits in just one color, they look like line drawings. Except the process of stitching is way more fun than drawing. I'm very process-oriented.
So after seeing my first Stevie Nicks embroidery, a friend of mine commissioned a portrait of Omar from the HBO series "The Wire" as a gift for her husband. And of course I was up for the challenge.
And please check out the clever blog by the woman who commissioned this piece, called Simple Etiquette with Proper Paige!
