Woman .... Circa 1950

Yay!!! here is my new "style" of embroidery!! Embroidery is ART!!! YAY I love her!! isn't she so saucy?? I love her hair!!! I want to marry her! Stitched onto the canvas and then added the nail heads around the edge for some flare! I did back stitch and split stitch. It took forever!! but I love her!! her nose is so cute!! I wish I had a nose like that....

For sale on my Etsy for $35 SOLD!!!!!

This is the first of many I will be adding to My Etsy! The next one is going to be so cute!! I already have it in the works! i really want to start to branch out in my embroidery... This is totally a different medium from what I am used to... Most of my stuff is either onesies or tea towels... but I want to start doing stuff that reflect me as a person. And since most of you know I am really into vintage things, Rock-a-billy music, and old country western! This is right up my alley!!

I saw this on craftster but didn't post a comment there, so wanted to be sure and post one here. This is FABULOUS!! No surprise it sold so quickly =).

I never thought about stitching on canvas. I picked several up yesterday and sketched in a design on one tonight and am excited to get stitching on it. (No, my design is not at all similar to yours!! I only stole the "stitch on canvas" part of your idea [g])

By the way, I love your blog banner, and slogan too!
