Elizabeth face

I am doing A Portrait of Elizabeth through the Shining Needle Society.  The Shining Needle Society is a Yahoo group that administrates online classes by well known teachers.  The teacher, Gay Ann Rogers, posts lessons on her website and we communicate through a Yahoo group.  You can see the finished piece and other people's work here.

 Joni Stevenson is an ANG Master teacher.  On her blog she has written an excellent article on stitch direction and how it can change the front of your work.  Although her examples are on canvas, it can also show up even when stitching on linen.
