In Germany, pigs are considered a symbol of good luck and marzipan pigs are given as gifts at New Year. This little piggie is a greeting card design by illustrator Petra Brown. She's a very luck pig, because she's lucky enough to have such pretty clothes. The image is stitched in embroidery floss and coloured in with pencil. I used beads on her shoes and lace on her dress and hat to make it a little more decorative.

A pig dancing a jig!  I love how great the colored with pencil parts came out. Looks great with the stitching you have done. Truly wonderful piece!
