happy valentines day, baby.

we spent a wonderfully relaxing valentines day at home, catching up on DVR together, while he wasn't allowed to look at what i was working on. i figured that i'd combine our shared love of law & order & my new hobby.

have you seen the svutines? this artist is brilliant.

i really wanted to try a portrait. a portrait in embroidery sounded like such a challenge. now... i'm not an artist. so what will i try out? a SVUTine already had a line drawing aspect to it, so i figured i'd give it a shot.

i took a valentine with dr. huang (i DARE NOT begin with his precious Marishka Hargitay/Olivia Benson!!!), traced it onto the material from the laptop screen to fabric, using my disappearing ink pen, and began. here are a few "in-progress" shots:

he appreciated the effort & had a big goofy grin after i gave it to him. now i should put it on the wall sometime...? not sure what else to do with it... :)
