I’ve had to hold off on this post until my Father-in-law’s birthday present was delivered!
Richard is both a big Schubert fan and difficult to buy for so this year we decided that an embroidery of Schubert was a good option.
I took this image:
Traced the outline and simplified the detail a little. I used split stitch for most of the design and fly stitch to shape the curly stitches on the hair. I’ve run the picture by a few of my musical friends and they assure me that it is a recognisable likeness! What do you think??
