I took a quick break from Les Moutons to make a wee Christmas Ornament. I'm really pleased how nice it turned out!
The squirrel is from a 1978 leaflet by Carolina Cross Stitch Inc. Titled Woodland Christmas Series #6. Their squirrel was grey so I changed the colors to red as we have brown squirrels here. I stitched him one over one on 25 count unknown fabric that I tea dyed. The fabric is really stiff, I suspect it's Monaco, I have a giant cut of it from who knows where. The little stitched border I nicked from a Shepherd's Bush design from a Just Cross Stitch Christmas issue. This little guy is just under 3 by 3 inches! Thanks, Vonna for the cute finishing help.
While straightening up my studio I came across this unfinished strawberry emery fob. No clue why it sat unmade but I stitched it together in less than five minutes. The berry is stuffed with a teeny bag of white emery to polish and sharpen your needles. You can find white emery here. The fob turned out so sweet!
