DUCJC 2016 - Day 2 - Sally Squirrel

Morning all!

Thank you for all of your lovely comments about Frankie Hedgehog yesterday. He was definitely a good project to start the year with.

Despite doing a Woodland Folk piece for day 1, the children chose another for me for day 2. So here is Sally Squirrel:


Sally Squirrel
DMC Woodland Folk
Stitched on 16ct Kelp over-dyed aida by Fabric Flair 2 over 1
Stitch count 55 wide by 54 high
Estimated stitching time 15 hours
Stitching time to date - 4 hours 10 minutes


I like this one - it's got big areas of the same colour! And stitching the butterfly first gave me the satisfaction of actually finishing part of the project. The remaining stitching was a bonus.

Something slightly different for tomorrow which the children think resembles me most of the time!

See you then,
Rachel x

More cuteness! It will look so sweet when finished, judging by the butterfly. I love it.
