8/5/11 Wild Thing

Finally got some time to sit down and stitch last night.  The giraffe is taking shape!

...although some eyes would make him look less creepy!

Another color or two on him and it'll be time to fill in the background.  It's a lot of green, but it looks really good when it's all said and done.  I'm still debating on whether or not to fill in the blank spaces in the zebra stripes, even though the pattern doesn't call for it.  The fabric is an oatmeal color, so the stripes seem a little dull.  But I'm thinking that the white may stand out too much.  I'm going to leave until it's time to backstitch the lion then I'll decide.
Pin It

I really like this alot. It's so cute and it's coming on great.
I would prob fill in the white if it didn't look bright enough, but like you say, you'll have a better idea once you've backstitched.

Lovely work, well done!

Awww, that's so cute, Lauren. I can't wait to see his eyes go in. Lion and giraffe, my two most favorite animals. :D

You are doing a great job on the cross stitching. It will be done before you know it.

How is the weather treating you? We are hot hot hot!
