i LOOOOVE this card. honestly, if i'd had time, i'd have made something else to send and kept it! i used so many diferent stitches - chevron stitch, double herringbone stitch, raised fishbone, crossed blanket stitch, mille fleur, chain stitch, open chain/ladder stitch, lazy daisy stitch, couching, french knots, pekinese stitch, fern stitch, running stitch, satin stitch and ramble rose stitch. 15 stitches! the E is copied from a dover book of decorative initials that i borrowed from my sister.

f is for fox
Photobucket
the image is from an old kid's colouring book, i found it on the doe-c-doe blog. i kinda wish i hadn't made the chest a diferent colour, but oh well, i don't have time to redo it. it photographed wierd - the cotton looks wavy, but it's not at all. odd.

that's the last of my recent embroidery projects, but there are lots of other stuff i still haven't posted! like papercraft stuff....
