Foxie Stitch Along Colorway 9

Putting the finishing touches to the Foxie sititch along.

All that was needed was to do Foxie's eyes, ears and nose.  I used the Statice colour for this little job.
It is a combination of mauve through to brown tonings.

Satin Stitch for the nose and eye. A small amount of backstitch on the ears and the rest is stem Stitch. Oh and don't forget a few French knots under the eye.

I intend to frame my Fox.  You could make him into a cushion or make him the centrepiece of a quilt.

Don't forget to pop on over to Katie Dawson's blog to see the brilliant colours that she used for hers.
I have thoroughly enjoyed doing this Stitch along and hope you have too.

Foxie Stitch Along Colourway 8

The end of our Foxie Journey is in sight!

After this colour is done, we only have the foxes nose, eyes and ears to do.

The colour I have chosen for No. 8 is Damask Rose.

There are only three leaves to be done.  Pictures to follow.  Most of the leaves are done in Stem Stitch.  Remember that us lefties work from Right to Left.  There is a small amount of simple straight Stitch and a tiny amount of Satin Stitch.
