My craft of choice recently has been embroidery. Its small, can be done in little snatches and is oh so soothing after a long day.
This little fellow is adapted from a pattern I found on the art blog of the crazy talented Gennine (seriously check her out- so amazing!) I adapted the pattern to fit the size of hoop I wanted to use and off I went. When I finished this little fellow just looked so sad to me that I added the tears. Not sure what he is crying about though.
To get the deeper colour on the tail I mixed strands of thread from the two colours I had already used. Both artistically pleasing and thrifty (I hate wasting thread!)
What have you made this week friends?
