SAL 53: Yay, Happy Dance!

Hi everyone, another 3 weeks has flown by and the dark nights are setting in! So, I have finally finished my little ballerina mouse embroidery, designed by Jenny McWhinney. The design has been pre-printed on a linen fabric and the embroidery stitches used are stem stitch and long and short.

This was my progress last time we met…..

And here is the finished little mouse…..

He just looks so sweet. The mouse is part of a series which form a string of bunting – so I may continue and finish the other pieces.

Many thanks for popping in and look forward to catching up in three weeks time.

Happy stitching.

We are a small group of crafters using a variety of different techniques. Please check out the fabulous stitching by all the other members of the SAL. If you are interested in joining us you can contact Avis for details.

    Oh that mouse is so adorable with the little ballet slippers on it’s feet and it’s ballet outfit. I just expected a brown mouse before you stitched it. I love it!
