More Mariachi madness
The little Mariachi is warmer now that his shirt is finished. Using Trio Natural, the body was worked in a framed mosaic stitch and the sleeves in a diagonal mosaic stitch, with wristbands of slanted Gobelin stitches over two canvas threads.
I've started stitching his serape, using a brown Burmilana tweed in an encroaching Gobelin stitch. Now I can have some fun adding the colored bands!
