Painted Lady Embroidery

Hi Gang! Wanted to share my newest embroidery project with you! Again I used Angelique Houtkamp's linedrawing book, because I just love her! Here's the one I made a few weeks ago!

The water colors get tricky because they bleed so much on the fabric. Her eyes look a bit wonkie to me haha! practice makes perfect right?! Gotta keep practicing! ;) Below is the piece in the different stages! I embroidered her entire turban, took a while but I think it turned out nice!

The lower left square shows the back on the piece - I LOVE the back any embroidery for some reason! :) And below is a new one I've started! I just love her eyes!

Becky! I love this! I don't have a ton of experience with emboridery, but am sort of dying to get into it.

Question: Are you hanging all of the finished projects together as a mural or spacing them throughout your house or giving them away? I think they're so cool!
