Be Mine?

Finished already! I absolutely loved working on this fun little Furry Tales mouse from issue 238 of The World of Cross Stitching (February 2016). It only took a few days of stitching, working here and there whenever I would get a free moment. The photo doesn’t do it justice, but the fabric is a nice light pink. I’m going to finish this off as a pillow ornament with some fabrics left over from my quilting days.

A Must-Stitch

Posted on

A couple of days ago I received an issue of The World of Cross Stitching in the mail, and it had this adorable Furry Tales St. Patrick’s Day mouse in it. Because I get the magazines a couple of months after they come out in the UK, that doesn’t leave much time for stitching this little cutie. One week, to be precise! I started working on her last night and will have to stitch all weekend to get it stitched and framed in time. I have just recently found out who my Irish ancestors were through ancestry.com, so I have never really celebrated St. Patrick’s Day before, apart from maybe wearing green. This year I will actually be able to say that I am Irish!

To protect Lucie Heaton’s copyright, I have blurred out the chart, as there is never a photo of the finished project in the Furry Tales section of the magazine. But I will post a photo of my finished stitch so you can really see what this cutie looks like!
