What are you most proud of? That I was able to get the face to resemble the photo. I find that the most difficult part. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I painted an oval hoop black and inserted a piece of unbleached muslin. I printed a black and white picture, taped it to a window and held the hoop over it and made a light tracing with a disappearing marker. Then I did the embroidery, embellished it with beads and covered the back with a piece of satin lining and added a loop for hanging.
