Studio Time: My Embroidered Self Portrait

I thought I would share with you the project I am most excited about from the last semester.  The assignment was to stitch a self-portrait, this was the embroidery learning module. It's not complete, but I am still really pleased with the results thus far.  I have a few more lazy daisy appliques, several french knots, and a bit of couching to finish up. Then I plan to frame it...

I have to say, this is my first experience embroidering. It feels like I'm a fish in water, though, the most beautiful and exciting rolling stream. Below is my sampler, which is basically that- a sample of all the embroidery stitches you know, or are learning as was this case. I love it as well and am considering sticking it in a frame, too.

I'll be sure to post pictures of the finished and framed pieces. Plus I hope to do some more work this summer in this medium. So stay tuned. ;)

You really have a talent for this. Your sense of composition is so immediate. The whole thing works but I really like the areas of the the breath being blown and the blue staggered 'fan' field. Awesome. More and more creative by the day.
