Hi all,

These are two little pieces I did this year, where MrXStitch challenged me to make them cooler than the original. Well I did my best. For the helicopter I used only the threads supplied with the kit, but for the mouse I dove into a little bit of stash.

I love the helicopter! It looks so much angrier, even before you notice the missiles. I really love the dramatic way you mounted it, too! What did you use for the black part that goes over the Aida... Is it paper?

@MistyJess yup it's just paper, and the red bit is one if those empty card frame thingies you can buy.

@thenorm2 I used to have pet rats as well and would love to have them again except I think my dog would view them as playthings.

I am in love with the mouse!
But I know if I had it my daughter would steal it to hang in her kitchen.
