Quaker Animal Exchange FOR Veronica

I saw that Veronica posted on Quaker Inspired blog that she has safely received my "The Workbasket Quaker Animal Exchange" piece which is one of project of Quaker Inspired blog, so I'm going to share what I've made for her!

It was very hard to choose what animal to stitch for her, but I had very nice over dyed thread just for flog and also the fabric, so after long time thinking I've decided to stitch flog...
But I recently knew that the "flog" is not good meaning at stitching field, in English... I hope she didn't mind what I've sent for her this "flog"...
I didn't mean it, at all... ('~';)

This time also I couldn't find a nice idea how to finish this off, as I stitched this on 28ct fabric, it became a bit big, so I made this into a tasseled pillow again...

These (see the last post...) were the first time for me to make tasseled pillows, but I quite like how these turned out!
So I think I will make some tasseled pillows from now on! :D

Here is the photo of backing fabric which I used for this flog pillow.
The colour matches so well with the thread colour, the photo is a bit blurry, though...
The chart has three motifs of Quaker Animals, and I also have another chart of this series, so I would like to stitch some of them for myself in the future, as it was very fun to stitch and also these Quaker Animals are very lovely!

Anyway, I do really hope that she liked what I've sent for her!

Recently I haven't been taking Grass Hedgehog's photo at all, as she looks the same as before!
If there was something change, I would take a photo of her and will upload the photo here!

A very cute frog, the green floss you used for it is perfect. Great job on a tasselled pillow.

Very beautiful embroidery!!!

Jenna said...

I love the colors that you chose. I think that's one frog that I wouldn't mind having visit. Besides, everyone needs at least one in their collection, to help ward about the bad stitching frogs.
