Face in 3 strands of silk and hair in 4 strands of floss
 Stitched the border in reverse scotch using 1/16 Kreinik and Neon Rays.

Black single line is stitched using size 8 Kreinik in the herringbone stitch over one.  The gray is 3 strands of floss in cross stitches over two.  She's pretty cute.

Baby Jesus from Heartstrings

Trick or Treat?? (updated with pics)

Treat for me!  I waited until Halloween when the sale discount was the highest and scored these two cuties from Amy's Golden Strand in Memphis, TN.  Let the stitching begin.
So cute from Painted Pony
