After the Tea Towel Swap was over, I was really bored!! One of the ladies (85%confusion) in the swap had done this for her parter and I knew I needed to! It's gonna go in the craft room. I'm either gonna make it into a wall hanging or pillow.... ?!?

also, this was my first go at the stem stitch.... it worked okay...






thanks for checking yo!

It's so cute! I like all the colors. I think it will be perfect for a craft room. (Do you sew? You could also make it into a machine cover or something like that.)

I think there's more to this picture than meets the eye.
The innocent look of the snail belies the fact that she is futzing up all the threads in that basket and making them all slimy.

I love your choice of colors! And you did a great job of switching up the different stitches.  It's perfect for a craft room- mine room could use some perking up like this.  Thanks for the inspiration!

It's so fun to see what different people come up with for the same pattern! Yours looks really cute - I love the fabric details.

You made it! Oh how cute! I love the colors you chose - very bright and cheery. I like the way your thread spools turned out better than mine!

So glad you liked the pattern!

Antarticraft - yours is fabulous, too!

Snails seem to be gaining popularity around here!

I used stem stitch for the snail, it was my first try at it, I guess that's how it turns out?! HA!

I used stem stitch on mine, too. I've discovered that longer stitches in stem look nicer than smaller.
