I friends! I Am just so excited. Last night I put the finishing stitches on the Kokopelli and he is all ready to be washed, ironed, and put into a frame! Here are the photos!
I think if i were to stitch him again I would go with black canvas to really make those colors pop. 🙂
Also because It has long been important to cross stitchers, ( and because lots of people just want to see it) I am going to show photos of the back. Some embroiderers feel very strongly that the backs should mirror the front, and that that is one way to judge how well the peice was stitched. I am of the opinion that if the front looks great, and there are no knots on the back, its perfectly acceptable.
Stay tuned! I plan to work on other fun projects Soon!
