Little Hedgehog

Spring is very slow in coming this year. We actually made it up to 6°C today, but the wind made it feel so much colder. We still have pockets of snow hanging on in all the places the sun doesn’t quite reach. The only hint that spring is actually on its way is the two fat little robins I’ve spotted and the bird song we have heard while walking to school. That isn’t enough. So, I set the cold, wintery stocking aside for a little bit and worked on this little cutie for a few days.

It is the cover kit from issue 225 of World of Cross Stitching magazine. It doesn’t seem to really have a name, and I have no idea what brand of floss it comes with. It has stitched up nicely so far, and I think it will look adorable when I add the back stitching. The daffodils are a lovely bit of spring colour when the outside is still all dull, muddy, and a wee bit snowy.

Smalls SAL – If you haven’t check-ed in for March yet, you still have some of time. The link list will close to new entries around mid-night Eastern time on April 1st. April’s check-in will take place on the 29th. Hopefully we will finally be having some spring weather by then! 😉

    This little hedgehog is just the perfect messenger of spring with his bouquet of daffodils. He’s so cute, this little guy.

    He’s so cute, typically Margaret Sherry. I do like her little creatures.
    The cover kits tend to use mass produced non-brand threads which is why they never exactly match DMC and the quality varies!

  4. We’ve only just started having some nice spring weather in the last week or so here. On Saturday when we got home from shopping I spotted the first little white flower to come up in the yard.

    I love your little hedgehog cross-stitch.

    I’ve just started a new Stitchery Link Party for all types of embroidery including cross-stitch. I’d love to have you come link up.
