Try , try , and try again .....my hands still shaky , but slowly I managed to draw out with my pencil onto my linen twill , another piece , with some more cheeky squirrels .
This is my own design , just freely drawn just as it came out of my fuzzy head . Fuzzy on account of having very little sleep .
I used an ordinary pencil . stem stitched around pretty much everything to begin with and herringbone stitched the rose leaves .
I,d really like to get the soft effect to the squirrel's tails this time .
