Spring Mouse in a House - restart

I wasn't happy with the one wall of the house after using the DMC Perle Cotton so I restarted the walls today.  The perle cotton was too thick as you can see in the first photo.

I back stitched all 4 walls of the Spring house.  Tomorrow I hope I have time to back stitch the floor (rug) and outside bottom.

Spring Mouse in a House

Sunday I started Just Nan's Spring Mouse in a House.   This photo shows the outline of one side of the house.  I didn't have enough of my DMC 210 embroidery floss, so I tried using some of the DMC 210 Peale Cotton floss.  Not sure if I like how thick the backstitching is.  I will stop by my LNS on the weekend and pick up some more of the 210 normal DMC floss because I'll need it anyways for the design.  I'll decide then if I want to keep this wall outline or start over.

Romeo Groom Mouse - update #1

Last weekend I stitched the white and finished the beige around the outside.  Tonight I did the ears (beige and pink parts) and started the black tuxedo.  I hope to have time this weekend to finish Romeo.

Romeo Groom Mouse

Tonight I started Just Nan's Romeo (Groom) mouse.  I'm stitching mine on 28ct Cashel Raw Natural.  This is not my favourite fabric because it is uneven like linen, I prefer 28ct evenweave.  I'm changing floss colours from greys to beiges because my fabric is beige not grey.

Happy Dance - Bride mouse

I finished the Just Nan Juliet (Bride) mouse.  I will stitch the Romeo (Groom) mouse next.  I'm plan to stitch all my mice and then spend a week to assemble them all at once.
