After finishing the Tao of Pooh piece, I reread that book as well as Te of Piglet and realized that I had to have the matched set. Smiley

This is the cover of Te of Piglet which is the sister book to Tao of Pooh. Once again, the author takes you into the Hundred Acre Wood to explain Taoism, but this particular book really talks to me. The gist of the book is the virtue of Being Small, which is what dear Piglet is all about. Being 4'11" myself and living in a world in which my 9 yr old son is already as tall as I am, this story sings true in many ways. LOL!

This piece is worked in split, back and altered feather stitch (the "plates" in his gold armor) with crayon tinting.

I think I've become addicted to the tinting. It's so easy and I absolutely love the results!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I love these books.  Your tinting looks great.  I especially like the tinting and stitching in the grass area.  The pink and green colors look great together.

Ooh, I really love this pair of embroideries.  The colouring is really warm and bright, too.  Hope they keep you sane Smiley
