Embroidery: Spy Girl
Hello everyone! I just completed another embroidery called 'Spy Girl'. I stitched the outline in two strands of a dark brown thread and then used one strand for the pattern detail in the hair. The red satin stitch collar uses two strands of thread as does the random line pattern on the skirt. The grey french knots in the background use three strands of thread. As expected, it was the intricate pattern of the hair that took the longest time to complete. I had considered using a design on the shirt as well but i thought it might end up looking a bit overkill so i've left it for the moment, but might go back to it again in the future.
