stitching away...

...all day long for many days now. this is the packaging desgin screen printed onto aida cross stitch fabric. i choose some blue and green threads and randomly stitched lines where ever i wanted and towards the end, made sure the colours were spread out all over the space etc and tidied it up abit. this has been going on now for quite afew weeks and pick it up to stitch when i want a break from the other work. i am just wondering now whether to add abit of pink and an black backstitch outline to the teeth and speech bubbles and maybe to the words. suppose it doesnt have to be black though. stitching round the words may be abit complicated and fiddley and i think i best leave it alone-well at least for afew days to let the idea of how it is at the moment settle. i am going to give them some eyes though-seed beads or french knots or something. time for tea i think-classic beans on toast or cheese sarnies...mmmm...

Cor. Looks so complicated! You can tell you've put in a lot of work into it. Can't wait to see them with beady little eyes.

these teeth are great! very quirky! Must have taken you ages to sew this, I never have the patience for this kind of thing. Sure you can link my blog, can I link to yours?
