Well, I decided on the wild and crazy armadillo for my challenge piece. After all, I am in Texas. But "she" is a girly girl with all her flowers and swirls so her body is stitched in Watercolors Sunglow, a soft pastel mix of yellow, peach, and green.
I started with her head this weekend. Here is a closeup of her face and eye. I've skipped over the swirls for now since I sill need to make a photocopy of her.
