I did this for a swap, a (whisper) non-craftster swap
Thought you guys might like to see it though Wink


I think she came out quite cute- I love anthropomorphic animals, think I will be doing more of this type of animal 'portrait'

I saw the thumb nail of this and I thought "oh, that's lovely! Maybe I can do something like that." But then I opened it, and immediately thought "Nope, not that talented." It's wonderful and you have a very lucky swap partner. What stitches did you use?

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

I am not even a flamingo fan, but I love this piece!  I love anthropomorphic animals as well.  Especially if its Victorian or Edwardian.  I can't wait to see what else you come up with!!
