The back stitching really made this little guy come to life. I really like the fact that he looks like he is smiling too. I should have mailed it out a day sooner, but my little guy took hold of the finished project after I took it off the frame (with dirty hands). Major panic set in. Two and a half months of work, and I thought it was ruined. Thank the good Lord for Dawn (hypoallergenic). Every little smudge came out. My little guy was admiring it and just had to touch. I just gave him a big hug and told him next time we will wash hands first. He was so cute and I wish I had a pic of his face. But with disaster avoided, its of in the mail and should arrive on Monday.
I have to say, that I will be taking a break today to rest my eye. He was a bit more difficult than I anticipated, but worth every stitch. I may consider stitching him again in a few years.
I do have my next tiny project kitted up (except for one color). I really need a pin keep. I have some stuck in my pin cushion and keep getting poked when I put it up for the night.
Well folks, thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for my next stitchy adventure............ pin keep or project already in progress???????????
