TIF Feb - not much success with this mess!

Here's the first stage of making the body for my Jack Frost doll.

I've used a blue dish cloth with different thicknesses of knitting yarn and a variety of spiky stitches to represent the lines of the frost pattern.

Here it is after running through the embellisher with added silk roving and lines of machine stitching:

Frankly, it's a mess and not at all the effect I was after. Irritating, isn't it, when what's in your head doesn't come out the end of the needle???!!!

I shall go off and do something else while I think about (sulk over) it.

Can you do all the embellisher work first then stitch over? Would be fabulous!
