Anyone who knows me knows that I love hedgehogs. I was recently inspired to create a couple of embroidery hoops based on that mild obsession. They are patchwork style with shrink plastic charms for added detail.

The Hedgehog's Adventure I



In Henry's first adventure he's determined to prove that hedgehogs CAN fly even if they don't have wings.

The Hedgehog's Adventure II




In Henry's second adventure he decided to try skiing, because the world needs more skiing hedgehogs.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Henry's little adventures have me wondering what he's up to next! And I'm completely envious of your perfect satin stitch.

Adorable! I love the style. I like that you made the non-nature items with the plastic shrink charm. Henry looks like he is having a blast. I have to go get my own hedgehog out but I don't think Helga is going to have as many adventures in my den as Henry is.

Heh, this is the first time my satin stich hasn't been an utter mess. Maybe I'll be brave enough to try some variegated shading next time. I need to pump Ludi for tips considering her absolute mastery of that particular technique.

I have to go get my own hedgehog out but I don't think Helga is going to have as many adventures in my den as Henry is.
To be honest, our real life hedgehog, Percy, is an utter homebody - he only wants to nap and run in his wheel. But maybe Percy has secret hedgehog adventure dreams Tongue
