mexican style skull

Oh how I love skulls, especially floral mexican(ish) day of the dead style skulls.
I'm trying to do a bit more embroidery based on my own designs rather than using found imagery. I drew this little skull and decided to stitch it up on some bright cotton. It was nice to do something in my usual style as a break from a few weighty WIPs that I've been working on. I used one of those spidersweb-like stitches for the yellow flower and was really pleased with how it looked so will making use of them again in the future.

Now must get back to stitching that teeny tiny banner...
