My husband is a handsome fella. He really is. I suspect we might be one of those couples where people say "He is way too hot for her!" But, then, when both are really, really ridiculously good-looking, that's just annoying. And no one wants to be their friend. I digress.
I'm taking this craft class, as you know, and the project I am currently struggling with is this sweet little family portrait embroidery. I draw us-like people all the time. But take away my pencil and paper and give me a needle and thread... and I'm lost.
I'm relatively happy with the stitchy versions of E and myself, but "the likeness" of my husband just keeps getting farther from the truth!
(I was trying to remove "stubble-stitches" but felt likes to hang on for dear life to the the thread. Thus creating the face-eating-spider-spawn look)

Also... does anyone else think he has feathers on his head?
Here's one for reference:
