This is what I've been doing for the last several hours. These are in the 8'' hoop. I will dissolve the stabelizer away in water then they will be stitched down on a landscape quilt. I have 2 of Nancy Prince's books and read them cover to cover. You can also see some demonstrations from her on The Quilt Show. I don't have an embroidery machine so this will work for me. It was easier than I thought.

These are my first attempt at people.
