DUCJC 2015 - Day 21

Good morning!

Wow! I was overwhelmed with your responses to yesterday's wintry Tatty Ted design. It seems as if you all like him and the fabric. Thank you so much for such wonderful comments!

Day 21 brought another Margaret Sherry design which accompanies my day 6 start of two mice hugging under a daisy. If you remember, I thought that without the backstitching the daisy resembled icing on a cupcake, so with that in mind I tried to create another iced cupcake. I didn't quite manage it but at least with some pink it doesn't look too much like a fried egg!

Daisy Umbrella (my title)
Featured in Summer Fun free booklet with Cross Stitch Crazy issue 167
Stitched on 16ct Antique White Aida 2 over 1

Love and hugs
