Welcome to new and old readers.
This is my Marjolein Bastin sampler for those that have just started reading my blog. I have named this little squirrel Nutkin. Isn't he going to be cute? He will really come alive when I have stitched his eye as Marjolein Bastin sure knows about eyes.
I am getting so close to finishing this piece. It had humble beginnings. I would highly recommend it as a stitching BAP as the pictures are fairly quick to stitch and are really beautifully detailed. This is what I have left to stitch: a pile of pumpkins (so appropriate as I am about to pick mine in the veggie patch), the "Marjolein" on the other side, a pencil, half of the lower border and a 1/3 of the right border. Once completed I have a one stitch wide border to do around the whole stitching. This border is meant to be in a buttercup yellow but I think I will stitch it in a mushroom brown or olive green.
I will be away at Easter so I want to give you an early Easter treat with my TUSAL posing amongst my childhood soft toy collection (all of which are bunnies).
Thanks for making a daisy chain in my garden...
