Something Silly

Hey there, Stitchy Peeps!

Last year, I doodled something silly. This year, I turned that silly little something into a piece of stitchery:

Meet Darlene. She's a dancing queen.

Mind you, I am not an artist. I do not draw anything but stick figures.

It turns out that transforming doodles into embroidery patterns is best left to the pros. :)

That's all for now, folks! I will be back soon with some, ahem, real embroidery pics soon. Until then...

Happy Stitching!

Hate to break it to you, but you ARE a pro.

Love this bit of whimsy.

How did you do the curly hair?

Kristi I like you Dancing Queen!! I am impressed with your doodling. I have sketched a little bird and I have it taped above my sink. I will have to stitch it!

I love her and I think you should stitch up more doodles :)

Kristi said...

Wow, you guys! Thank you so much!

Mom Wald--The hair is just teensy little back stitches.

Thanks all! Di, you know a Darlene that looks like my doodle? TOO CUTE! :)

Bethie, I do remember your cute doodle-stitches. :) As for Darlene...well, the poor gal is under a pile of wips on my desk, waiting for me to properly frame/finish her for display. :(

It's very cute. I like the idea of stitching stuff I drew...if only I could draw.
