Hello all, well its STEM stitch this week and I was in absolute disarray about this one !! My mind boggled for ages.....You see I wanted to do something 'out of the box' so to speak ! Well after much deliberation, I came up with this little fellow..............He is done entirely with stem stitch, with the exception of his turquoise braids!
When I found this image, I thought no, this would be too difficult but I challenged myself to go forward and try........I am so pleased with the outcome and a secret wish of mine has always been to meet a real red indian chief...maybe one day ! Oh and I lied....I did use a little satin stitch on his head dress......I hope my little red indian nurses me back to health soon, cause I still cant get rid of this rotten virus !!!
I did highlight the background with coloured pencil for effect and to accentuate some of his facial features....
Hope you have a healthy and happy week-end, and thank you for taking the time to check out my stitches,
