Do you remember?

Do you remember me showing you this one?  This canvas is from Colonial Needle and she fits one of the tote bags.  I call her Wild Woman....just look at that hair!!  What fun!!  Let's get started!

I am working on her face first.  I am also trying out one of the Bohin needles to see how I like stitching with it.
I am using two strands of Splendor and it may be a little hard for you to see, but I have done her forehead, down her nose and under her eyes....just to the top of her glasses.  Since this piece is going on the front of a bag that I will carry a lot, I am going to try not to get too carried away with her, but she is going to be a lot of fun.

This is the hair-do of the lady lawyers in Austin, Tx. My DIL wears hers like that - it's considered rather chic. YUK

LOL Judy doesn't like the spiky hair. Oh, well, it is chic. We'll have to bow to Fashion. LOL

About the Bohin needles, I had someone tell me they felt like they had ridges on them to her and after a while they hurt her fingers. I can't feel any ridges but I'm insensitive. It'll be interesting to hear what you think.

I like this design and looking forward to see how you will stitch her.

I actually like her hair, not for me as this is not my style but for her it looks great.
