new icon started

I am teaching a couple of classes based on icons next year so decided to do a modern one to go along side my traditional goldwork one. I thought I would have a contemporary design too, it seems that everyone you see has something plugged into their ears!

I have applied fabric for the background and halo, now I am working the face in long and short stitch. The head phones will be padded I think. I then plan to work some embroidery stitches on the halo fabric. Its amazing that I took 2 years to master long and short stitch when I was training and now I love it.
