WIP Wednesday - Tribute to Erro - Girl #3

Wow - it feels like I have been working (er, hardly working!) on stitching this face for a million years... It also feels like a million years since I have posted a WIP Wednesday!

Here is the progress I have made on my Erro face since the last time I posted about it back in June. I think I have made quite a bit of progress.

I am happy with it so far - the lips still need to be filled in.

Here is what it looked like when I first started stitching to give you an idea of the progress. Please excuse the very poor photo lighting!! :) It almost doesn't even look like the same eyes...

This is my third girl in my "tribute to Erro" embroidery project. Erro is my favorite artist and I chose 3 girls faces from his paintings/drawings to embroider. They are for me - I hardly ever stitch something just for me to keep. I plan on mounting them on canvas when I am finished.

I previously posted here about Girl #2 and and Girl #1 you can check out here on my Flickr page.

Hopefully it will not take me another three months to finish!
