Embroidery Update

I thought I'd share a peek at the progress of the large embroidery piece I've been working on.  Yesterday I ended up stitching on some extra pieces of muslin because I was getting too close to the edge and it was hard to hoop the work.

I'm a little annoyed at myself for miscalculating how large this piece was going to get, but that's life.  The seams aren't ideal, but I'm going to live through it.  ;)

I've pretty much been working on the afro area for the past few weeks.

As you can see, I pencil in the design as I work.

And I thought you might enjoy a peek at the back.

Not quite as clean as it could be, but super cool looking nonetheless.  I put knots in my embroidery, which is a no-no, but I still do it anyway!  Lots of stray threads in places that I messed up, but hey, that's part of the journey, right?

Thanks for stopping by!
