Steph's forest block #3

This block was really fun for me.  I have been doing hand embroidery since I was four or five.  So I really enjoy doing it.  I decided that for my color I would normally never use, I would outline my little critter in hot pink.  Oddly enough, I REALLY like how it turned out!
here is the little fawn...

I picked out a few pictures of bambi for refference, and then drew it in chalk.  I really like how it looks.  Then, here is the entire unit:

and then the whole thing so far:




I am really really enjoying this!

What a cute fawn, and what a cute block. You are so clever and creative. This IS a fun project, and most of the fun is watching for the creations of the rest of the group. Love how yours is working out,
