señorita revisited

with french knots

So, it's almost been a year since I stitched this señorita last - she was one of my first projects ever - stitched on a light blue t-shirt. My skills have progressed a little since then - for one thing I finally learned how to do the french knots that eluded me the first time around. Also, I decided to take on the whole design - the first time I left out the large flower border:

muchas flores

It kind of amazes me how different she looks from the version I stitched on my t-shirt... I guess that's the difference non-stretchy fabric makes! I'm using the same colors I used on the bird pillowcase for Isa. I'm still not sure what I'll make with this... a pillow? I've been so busy with other things that my progress will probably go a bit slowly on this one...

This is looking lovely. I really liked those colours you used in the pillowcase.

So pretty, Floresita. Your stitching is very accomplished. I especially like the raised quality of the cord for the hat. It makes it look 3-dimensional.

Thank you Sally! I don't normally gravitate towards those colors, but I really tried to think of something my friend would enjoy... :)

Thanks Gina! It's a beautiful pattern. :)

Helle, it means a lot to me that you compliment my stitching! :) I used a split stitch. :)
