A Cute Mouse

I love cover kits from the magazines as they are perfect for those times when you have 5 mins to spare.  I did enjoy stitching this lovely mouse but..........most of the back stitching was half stitches (in the centre of a whole stitch) and was quite fiddly plus tended to make your neat stitches look messy as you push the needle up or through.  The card really sets your finished piece off and now he needs a home.....................

So my next project, mmmmm well I do have a ruby wedding sampler to start as it is my parents 40th next year plus I have to finish some egyptian pieces, the only thing putting me off Nefertiti is the gold thread! pulling your hair out is a understatement lol.
