'K, so this was my 1st swap & I was a tad nervous about the whole thing.  After much Pinterest stalking, I came up with the idea to do a jackalope.  then I got the message that Pupper likes spring colors & was secretly wishing for a pair of Victorian scissors.  While the idea of stitching a 6" pair of scissors was unappealing, I knew I had to do it when I saw a tiny 3" hoop at the craft store. 

"Enough yammering Beka, show us the goods!"

action shot:


So the little guy's kinda pissed that he got caught.  Did you know that they can be quite vicious?


closer up:


And the scissors:

Some of those stitches are *tiny*.  One little thread width apart on the fabric tiny. 

C&C welcome.

Wow. I really envy your stitching, the scissors in particular, and I love the expression on the jackalope's face.

I love the jackalope and the colours you used for it!  Cheesy And those scissors are seriously TINY - you must have good eyes and a lot of patience! Well done, you!  Grin

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