Panel 3 Is Complete

Behold, my little squirrel.  Just look at those adorable little eyes!

Next up is a chipmunk.  I find the browns are the least favorite colors for me to work with, and I found that this little guy dragged a little.  Now that he is done, I think he's cute as a button, but it just felt like such a chore to sit and stitch this particular panel, for some reason.

Tonight I resolved to finish it, and I stubbornly sat there until the last stitch was in.

Unfortunately, I believe the chipmunk is more of the same colors, but after that, it will be on to the brighter colors I prefer to stitch with.

I don't think I'll even get to him until the weekend, but I hope he is a fast stitch.

Fingers crossed.

  1. He certainly is cute!

    I hear you about the browns - whenever I come up to a really bland brown part of a pattern, it takes me sooooo long to stitch through. I can't ever wait to get back to blues, purples, and pinks!

    1. They really are the doldrums of stitching, aren't they?
      Same with when I have a HUGE block of black or white. I find that the best remedy is to put on a good movie and mindlessly stitch.

    1. Aaarrrggghhh, the browns (and sometimes the whites). I have a secret weapon for when I am stuck with a big patch of a boring color, I put on the Colin Firth version of Pride and Prejudice. Suddenly that big patch doesn't seem so big.
