Manohra Thai Dance: Arms

I have started on the arms in split stitch. I am thinking about how to work her face. I have never worked a face before, and I want to keep the expression. 


I thought I’d show you the back today, in case you are curious.

Anyway, posting is light because my dissertation writeup is due in less than two months. So I am writing a lot, but not for y’all! Am looking forward to getting back to embroidery 🙂 Soon!

    Curious about the back. How do you avoid entanglement when not snipping threads as you go?

    She is so adorable! I’ve never done a face, so no help from me. Good luck, I’m watching to see how you do! And good luck on defending your dissertation. (my son defends his in March)

    I love to embroider faces.I feel satin stitch is the most perfect (depends on the width, is this a small face?)

    It is so good to see you again. I have gone back on your entries because I missed a few. My mom got sick so I had to sell the house and get her used to a retirement center. She is now blind. I very much enjoy your embroidery. I too will have to sit and let my hands to some needle work. I have trouble with my eyes but I just take me glasses off so I can see in more detail. You are a wonder. Thank you.
