A swing and a miss!




You start with a reasonably cute squirrel, see? And then...




... you carefully select your floss colours according to your source photo...


And then you...

Oh dear.

And then you pick it out. (!)

Maybe you could just outline the squirrel with embroidery and leave the inside shading as is?

Linda Kittmer said...

Oh no...I hate that part of the process!

Beth said...

Poor chap looks like he got into some plant fertilizer...shears please!!!

Mary Ann said...

I think he was okay except for his tail....it needs to be fuller/furrier maybe?...and hang the other way?

Lisa Chin said...

Hahaha! I actually like him. I guess he doesn't go very well with the quilt though. Better luck next time! I'm on round 5 of designing and making a quilt block. No unpicking just doing it again and again and again - *deep sigh*.

Boy, talk about a bad hair day for poor squirrel! And those teeth! Thanks for the hahaha!

Perhaps if you used fewer strands on the needle. Also, pretend your petting/smoothing his fur. so funny!!

Patti said...

Oh dear! It's a good thing we have a good sense of humour about these sorts of things...maybe your squirrel is a mash-up type...zombie squirrel takes on TO, lol! Aw...well all your work is so wonderful. Your squirrel will get there too.

Was saying just last night that I hope to see a squirrel while I an in the US. I am not sure I'd be keen to meet that particular squirrel on a dark night, crossing the park.
