But of course, whilst I may know I'm going to stitch it, finding the time is another thing. It took me a year to buy the pattern, and then another few months to actually start it. And you know what - it only took a few evenings' work!
I've embroidered it on some linen, using DMC threads, mostly in two strands. I really struggled with the leaf on the bottom left - I wanted bigger gaps between the straight stitches (rather than a solid appearance) and I was concentrating (and failing) on that so much that I ended up with a bit of a funny shape. I'm happier with the other leaves!
It's now all hooped up and ready to hang on Mia's wall. I'm planning on a hoop for each of the girls ecah month this year, and so far with this one for Mia and the pink Dinosaur for Jess, I'm on track!
This is a Finish Along finish. You can find my original list here!
