What are you most proud of? The whole piece! I made this portrait of Ben, the mule, for his owner totally with thread on a brown background fabric. I utilized the divide and conquer method to break up the background and fill it with contrasting thread designs so that the portrait really stands out on this piece. All the background designs are based on a " diagonal grid; some designs are directly from this course, others I made up to fit the piece.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It's all done one stitch at a time, no matter how complex the piece.

awesome, you came up with some wonderful grid variations! You may be seeing them copied on other people's works soon.... :)

Thanks Karen; and it's quite fine with me if others want to use what they see here!

Wendy, you are so amazing. I love looking and discovering. I expect things in the background, but you really have to look in the figure too. So much fun

It is amazing. If I had not read your comments, I would have thought it was applique.
