September Horse 3x3 inches
Actually, there's a funny story behind this piece. I joined Kaye's Christmas Ornament SAL. I thought I'd get a jump start on September's stitching. The themes for September are Christmas tree or presents. Well, silly me - when I saw this pattern, I couldn't find the colored picture of the finished product…I thought the barrel of apples was a present. (Yes, I know - I should have gotten a hint form the name of the pattern "SEPTEMBER Horse"). SIGH. It wasn't until I had stitched the whole barrel of apples up I realized it wasn't a present. And - yes - there are two different browns on the horse's body. I wanted him to have a bit of a shadow on his front quarters - not sure I pulled it off.
SHRUG. It became my August Smalls SAL. Oh - and I did manage to find another pattern for the September Christmas ornie SAL. It's done <G>
