Some More Embroidery from South America
I love this little needlecase.

An idea

One of my all time favourite animations is Yuri Norstein's  "Hedgehog in the Fog".

The story centres around a little hedgehog who goes to his friend, the bear, at his house, to count the stars. 

I thought that I might embroider some little hoops, the ones you can hang around your neck, with  images of the bear and the hedgehog for my great nieces as Xmas presents.  The things is, these little hoops are only about 1" in size so I expect that I will have to do outlines and maybe one or two features that are stitched.

So, I have done a couple of little sketches to get started.  I need to stitch four of them.

They are quite cute so I can see me stitching more than just four.  Yoko Saito made a wonderful quilt about this little hedghog.  I wonder if I could do a little drawing of him?

You are busy, and making yourself even busier, but oh, what fun it must be with such lovely creatures around!


Those are perfect minimal designs!

Thank you.  I hope they work in the little hoops.
