This little cutie is by Margaret Sherry and is from the bookazine 'The Best of Margaret Sherry' by Future publishing. The little mouse is only one part of a design for a Christmas tree skirt .....
The chart calls for Anchor threads and although I do have quite a few anchor threads, I'm more of a DMC kinda gal! :) So after converting the thread colours and wincing at the colour combinations (I guess the conversion chart I used wasn't that great!) I ended up just choosing the colours that I thought would work best. Sadly the stitching from the magazine didn't offer much help for colour selection as the poor wee mouse is almost chopped out of the picture!
Anyhoo, I'm really pleased with this little guy...he's sooo cute!
So...what to do with this sleepy mouse? At the moment he's being added to the pile of finished stitching that's waiting for the finishing fairy to come and sprinkle some finishing fairy dust on me! ;) (aka....I'll worry about that later!)
And if the weather doesn't warm up soon, I might just snuggle up with this little fella until Spring does finally arrive.
Until next time...happy stitching!
