I just finished "Gingerbread Mouse" by "Just Nan" design. It is very interesting design to work on. I had a bit of trouble stuffing the batting inside the mouse to stitch the brass button on the bottom of the mouse with my fat, pudgy, arthritis fingers. Once I managed it, it looks not too bad. The whiskers is from the fishing line instead of floss since I wanted the whiskers to be stiff. I will put a loop on the mouse to hang on this year Christmas tree.
I just finished stitching the suede leather as fringe on her blanket. Also the beading on her mocassin. The backstitching takes lot of time since I have to stitch around each design of the eagle in matching thread, example: Red on red designs and blue on blue designs. There are some beading on the drum strap strips. I am now working on my way up to the head and the wolf design.
Summer is here so I am not stitching as often as I used to. Gardening, yard work, visiting family members, doing more exercises, enjoying the sun, etc. I finally got all of my threads so will be doing beading, stitching feathers, fringe for the blanket and stitch a wolf head dress on the head. Looking forward to when it is finished and framed.
