Embroidery

I just thought I would post a few picks of the things I have been working on this week. I begin each face with just drawing right on the muslin and then with three strands of floss and some very simple stitches begin coloring with the floss. I have yet to make the pattern for the body, but that is how I work with all the dolls. First comes the face and then I worry about the body later.

Hi Kim

I love the rabbits, so cool, I haven't done faces like that in years. Thanks for the great ideas!

What a good idea, I always thought I had to do the body first and then the face. Ahh, so much to do, but still such fun. Take care. Susan
