i was going to try some crayon tinting on this one, but since i have not tried it before, i didnt realize youre supposed to do it before you stitch. oh well, next time.

I'm a vegetarian and LOVE this! I Think I want to do a whole set of edible animals for my kitchen now lol.

I like it sans tinting .. I've done that on a few pieces and found it to be tricker than anticipated!

Haha, cute!! Have you considered doing a set with a cow, chicken, or sheep as well? They'd look awesome in a kitchen or dining room.

really fun - excellent job!  Definitely make a set!

I am tossing my old set of kitchen cross stitch - my needlework hung in the kitchen really needs to be covered in glass  Tongue they are pretty grungy

so - looking for more fun and less traditional, this certainly fits the bill, I may copy yours!

Hilarious!
Well stitched too!
I'm not a vegetarian, but I can imagine a lot of veggies would be amused.
I have a shirt with a steak on it that says "I'm made of meat!". Might as well have a sense of humour about it. Smiley
but, great job.

NOOOOO!!! run away piggy, run away! Cheesy Cheesy

I'm a vegetarian who thinks this is funny. I'm not going to show my carnivorous DH, because I know he would demand one.

I agree, im very jealous of your perfect stitches! I'll bet it would have been hell tryibng to do the crayon wash deal to look like marbling. I cant eat pig without pretending its a cop, maybe this would help, on the napkins or something.....
