THIS IS PAGE THREE

BELIEVE IN THE MAGIC OF THE SEASON.


Margaret Sherry http://gallery.ru/watch?ph=bkbM-e7cATThis time the challenge was to stitch a tiny page for a book with the theme Christmas, and I knew the fabric for the book was deep red with gold on it, Ann plans to have the folding book on display each year when she puts out her Christmas decoration, I note she had pinned this Margaret Sherry design (on the left) on one of her boards in pinterest , too big for the small space we have to stitch in  for these small pages of 5 x7 cm (2 x 2 3/4 inches) it did however  set me looking to see what I could find. and this tiny mouse was perfect, however with no chart I decided I would also
use  it as inspiration for another piece of needle painting. besides birds I had done rabbits a couple of times before using this form of stitching but this is my first mouse. it was a very enjoyable piece to stitch. here is the result., I would love to have added some padding behind him specially his face but as it is to go on a book page I guess it is already more than thick enough.

Just had a phone call to say mouse has arrived and Ann is delighted with him, so now I can post and share with you..... i am now working on the fourth and last page.

Your mouse is so much nicer than the x-stitched version. I scrolled down slowly and when that came into view, my jaw dropped! One perfect book page!
