    Thank you all...I'm sure am blushing.

    This was my first attempt at free standing applique. The eyes have lots of little pieces in them and I think what makes them "come alive" is the tiny crystals that I used to give them sparkle. I did start with a photo that I blew up on my puter and traced onto freezer paper in sections. (monitor made a great light table) I first changed the photo to black and white to get the sections defined easily, then I changed it back to the original colors. It is small...finished at about 21" x 21"...just a small wallhanging.

    Here is the pic that I started with....

    I blew this up and cropped it for the wallhanging

    That is wonderful! It looks like a picture. You are very talented! The stitching looks like fur and the eyes are amazing.

    Double WOW on this one, I just wish I could do that embroidery thread painting like you do. You are just great at that Patti.

    Love the Kitty, this one is called Pretty right? I saw him on the webcam
