My second Pin Up is finished! Here she is, I'm sure you'll understand why I have named her Marilyn :)
|Marilyn, she's a minx!|
I am really getting into this embroidery lark! I decided to get a bit fancy and add a lot more detail to my second Pin Up, giving her a lacy look to her underwear with lots of little french knots. I also used much smaller stitches for her facial features which I think gives her a more polished look than my first Pin Up (practice makes perfect!). Here are some close ups to really show all those yummy details...

The more of these beauties I stitch up the more I love them! Embroidery is such a great thing to do when I get home from the theatre in the evenings, it's the perfect way to unwind after a hard day's work. I cannot wait to start my next girl, I am officially addicted!

I want to thank you all for the love you have been showing these Pin Ups so far, your lovely comments have made me so happy! So many of you have mentioned an interest in embroidery yourselves, and I say get on it! I really hope you all get your fancy threads out and start creating some lovelies of your own, and please send me pictures if you do :) Let's start the embroidery revolution!
Bye for now!
