Cross-stitch and Embroidery

You must have been a boo-tiful baby…

From the Just Cross Stitch Halloween ornament spectacular, may I present “R.I.P.’s Girl” by Charlette Dockens.  I immediately zeroed in on her as soon as I picked up the magazine, and knew I had to stitch her.

She was stitched on 14-count perforated paper using three strands for cross-stitch, one strand for backstitch and beading (yes, her jewelry is actually beaded).  I corded some floss myself for the hanger, and backed her with glittery purple felt.  Oh, and you can’t tell from the picture, but her eyes were stitched with DMC Light Effects glow-in-the-dark floss.  I love that stuff, and wish I had more applications for it.

I think I’ll hang her up at work – make my coworkers jealous.  Heh.
