Lil' Critters exchange part 2

I saw this morning that Terry had received the Lil' Critters exchange I made for her, so here it is. Brownie points for anyone who can spot which bit of chart I used for the design!


Terry had asked for any of various little critters, so I added a ladybug, itsy bitsy spider (I was pleased with him!), a couple of butterflies and a dragonfly button. I used Karen's tie-on pillow class to finish it off.

It's been a busy week so not much else to say stitching-wise. I had two days in London supervising a photoshoot for a soup cookery book, which was fun. Lots of lovely fresh soup to try. I'll be making one of them this weekend at home it was so nice!

I'm currently stitching a gift, a RR and an exchange. This weekend will be finishing off the exchange and another gift and stitching on Linda Ravenscroft's Garnet as part of a SAL weekend on the HAED board (a last minute decision as I haven't worked on her yet all year).

Edited to add: Of course the pillow is from part of LHN's The Bookshelf and of course Veronica guessed it correctly. Well spotted!
