Switching Colors...

Black Lab Embroidery

I'm working on an embroidered piece for a client. She requested a chocolate Labrador retriever. I gave her a number of Labrador head and body embroideries from which to choose, and she loved this one. I admit, it's a great face. My job was to convert the color key to resemble a chocolate, rather than black dog.

The machine stitching is complete now. I did add some thread painting to the nose and eyes to give it a bit more dimension, and now I'm really happy with the result. (I shot this image slightly off axis, so it appears shorter than it actually is.)

I have to do some pre-election/clerk work this morning, but I'll be piecing and assembling the rest of this project this afternoon and evening. I'll share the result with you next week.

Oh, it's that time of year again. Don't forget to set your clocks ahead an hour before you hit the hay tonight. (An hour less sleep. Just what I need. Yeah...not really.)
