Last time I was being watched, it was random items appearing as faces.
Now, I'm being watched by my stitching. This is the Candy Cane Reindeer by Serendipity Designs from the 2010 JCS Christmas Ornament Issue.
Usually when I stitch a face I like to do the outline first and add the features last.
But, I also start stitching in the middle of a design and that's where the eyes are in this design. So, I started at the eyes and then the nose and then the outlined. As I work, I'm being continually watched.
The eyes always add soul to a design. In this case, it's big buggy eyes and it's hard to think serious thoughts while looking at these eyes. I'm enjoying some not so serious stitching.
It's been fun watching the design grow around the two eyes. With each stitch the face becomes more complete and real. It's getting to the point were it's talking to me. It wants to be finished. Soon.
