Hooray! I finally finished my little mouse.
It took a while as I was also making jams and chutneys from our abundant fruit supply this year. A bumper crop. If you are interested, I posted photos of some items at http://www.flickr.com/photos/crazyqstitcher/
I only used a 6″section of the original project photo. Something about the thorns bothered me so I only added 4 to the branches.
Later I discovered the originals were going the wrong way. I didn’t bother changing them as it will become a book cover, not framed.
