Field Mouse Ta-daa!

 Ta-daa!
All finished! Well my part is anyway. I've teased, tweaked and trimmed. 
Sprinkled, rubbed and rolled.
Rinsed, stretched and dried.
 Stabbed, tufted and stitched.
 Phew!
 Nearly forgot, I've dyed too!
 Now it just needs framing! I think that'll have to wait until after Yarndale, I can't risk it not being ready in time. 
I don't think anyone will mind seeing it in the raw.
Do you?
Now then...what's next?

It's beautiful - you are a real artist. It looks fine unframed - if you are selling it itwould allow the person to do what they want with it. I am so impressed.

He's perfect, right down to the detail of his teeny little feet. I would love him, the new owner will be very lucky. Would love to see more pics of the developing work, dying, rolling, etc., as I know it doesn't just go 'ta-da'all by itself! but is a lot of hard work before the embroidering gets to happen. Betty

Words fail me, it is so beautiful.
At the risk of being a sycophant I have to say that you manage to make the animals come alive, the eyes are just wonderful and the position of the little legs is cute. The daisies (one of my favourite flowers) are gorgeous.
Look forward to your next picture.

Incredible work. I can't believe the detail you get in your work. The mouse looks like it has been painted . . amazing.
You are obviously very talented. I hope sometime in the future you will run some workshops.

Just Fan-Tas-Tic! I love seeing your work, it is delicate, humourous, and so atmospheric - I felt I was almost balancing on the next blade of grass.

Wonderful! Thanks for showing us.
