Woohoo! I have another finish to share with you! That's two in one week and four so far this year! This girl is steaming!!
This is Sleepy Book from the Odd Dog range and was my start for day 16 of the challenge. Here is how I left him:
Here he is after completing the stitching:
And, finally, here he is after adding the backstitching:
Stitched on 16ct Cloud Blue aida from Sewitall.com 2 over 1
Stitch count 64 wide by 43 high
Started - 16th January 2016
Finished - 5th February 2016
Total stitching time - 12 hours 45 minutes
I can't stress how much I love this cute piece, even though the colours have not come out quite as bright as suggested by the cover picture. The sleepy yawn is exactly what happens to me when I try to read and, judging from previous comments, a lot of you feel like this when you pick up a book too!
I haven't yet decided how to finish him so, for the time being, he will join my other Orphans in my Box of Shame.
So, what's next on my frame I hear you ask? Well, I have chosen a piece on which I only intend to make a few hour's progress before moving onto another finish. However, I have a feeling I will not be able to put it down. I suppose it just depends on my cattitude!
