Embroidered me some bones... yes I did.

I know, I know Halloween was some time ago, but  for my most recent hoopla swap, my partner was a forensic anthropologist and she likes bones. So I stitched her some! I personally have an attachment to hand bones, as I wouldn't have a career if I wasn't able to do what I can with my hands.

I wanted to try a slightly more realistic approach than I usually do with embroidery. I used different shades of thread to show shadows and highlights. I was really pleased with how this came out. I hope that she liked it!

You could also just give this embroidery a high five if you wanted.. wait that's kind of weird... oh well!

  1. I'm sure she LOVED it. This is amazing. I would have guessed you drew this with colored pencils, not stitched!! Such a great work.
