DUCJC 2015 - Day 6

Back again!

I've only posted 5 challenges so far but I have been receiving some wonderful and encouraging comments. So I wanted to say a big thank-you to everyone who has viewed or commented. Your time and effort is very much appreciated. :)

Following on from yesterday, the day 6 start was another Margaret Sherry cutie mouse-themed design. The sky stitched up really quickly as I only had two colours to contend with and I just couldn't go to bed until I'd finished the daisy (although without the backstitching I think it looks more like the icing on a cupcake!) I'm stitching this one on Aida, which is never good for a Margaret Sherry design, but there aren't too many fractionals so I can cope.

Day 7 sees me working with an absolutely gorgeous almost-good-enough-to-eat piece of fabric. This I am really looking forward to!

Love and hugs

Love it! Margaret Sherry designs are too cute and I'm stitching one of her cats as a gift currently! I can't mention it on my blog as the person it's a gift for often pops by to see what I'm stitching!

Love this design! Too adorable. Great job with your icing it looks delicious. Definitely one of those designs that the back stitch will make it even better!
