I really love Mexico, especially the food and Frida Kahlo - it's definitely on my list of places I would LOVE to to visit! It's also common to find skulls like these in Mexico which celebrate 'day of the dead' over there. I like the skulls because I find them pretty :)
This was a great project to try my hand at embroidery, I love the result but it's a very long process embroidering by hand!
It is a pin cushion but I think I prefer it as a decorative hangy thing.. Sticking pins in its face makes me feel uneasy!
