Thank you for all of your comments on my last couple of finishes. I'm surprised by how many of you liked Cantankerous' orange fabric. When I get around to it I intend to stitch each of the 12 Cattitudes on different colours of Murano so at some point in the future you will see lots more gorgeous colours.
In the meantime, I have another finish! I chose to work on Sally Squirrel because I knew she would be a quick and easy finish.
Here's how I left her on 2nd January:
DMC Woodland Folk
Stitched on 16ct Kelp over-dyed aida by Fabric Flair 2 over 1
Stitch count 55 wide by 54 high
Started - 2nd January 2016
Finished 15th February 2016
Total stitching time - 11 hours 15 minutes
(estimated 15 hours)
The backstitching could have been a nightmare because the suggested route involved splitting the aida "squares" not only in halves but also in quarters. I wasn't prepared for all that faffing around so modified the backstitching to make it easier! I don't think it shows.
I have already decided that the 6 Woodland Folk creatures will be framed together. All I have to do is finish the other 5 - one of which is already on my frame. But as to which one it is, well, you'll have to wait and see!
