Wild Woman's glasses need to be a bit prominent as they are forward in the canvas and maybe sliding down her nose a bit.  I took DMC Memory Wire and outlined the shape of them to start.

Then, using four strands of Splendor, I laid satin stitches over the top of the wire.  I could have achieved this result by double padding the shape but the wire works great!  The I took Frosty Rays and laid in the highlights on her glasses.
I was asked the size of this canvas and am not sure I ever told you but she is 10 inches wide and 8 inches high.  This is going on a Lee purse as the insert when I get it done, and yes, it is for me!  LOL
