Field Mouse Part 2

Next in the stitching of the Field Mouse is part of a stem….this is a particular challenge as there are “odd” shapes to create with the long and short stitch to help with the blending and what should be called  light and shadow effects…so the challenge began and below is the attempt….it will be interesting to see the final result as I progress through the stems, leaves and wheatear…Hopefully…of course by the time I actually get to the mouse I will be an expert?! Ha!!!! Me, myself and I are my best critic!

 

Love to hear comments...thanks!
