Winnie the Pooh start


I laid down Eiffel Tower for a few days to get this piece done. Because of the detail and the colors in Eiffel Tower I just needed to take a few days off from it and do something very easy and Winnie the Pooh is it. This is the 2nd of 4 pieces I will be doing for my great nephew. The pieces will surround his birth announcement which I also will do. I am surprised at how quick these are going so far and although so simple I really am enjoying them. I hope Tigger and Piglet are just as much fun and easy. I think Tigger has a little more detail but he'll be okay.

We still have snow falling off and on added on to what we already have. A lot of Lake Effect snow is suppose to go south of us and north of us, we are just to get a little. We'll see. Often we are in the small pocket that gets lucky, get some snow but not the storm.


This piece will be No. 13 towards the 50 challenge. It's taking me long enough to get "unlucky 13" in. I did purchase a leaflet and 2 kits today. The two kits were Norman Rockwell's I will do for my mom. The leaflet is Thomas the Tank that my sister-in-law will do for Baby John. And I'll use it for Love Quilts and Cole's quilts, so they are allowed in. Well until next time Happy Stitching!

Pooh looks great. The back stitching brings him to life! Tigger will go quickly but, his stripes are a pain to do. :)

Pooh is looking good. I'll enjoy seeing your others as well, especially Tigger as he is my favorite.

What an adorable Pooh! I've done a couple of small Pooh Bears for this & that but I'm never 100% satisfied with my backstitching for the face. Yours looks PERFECT!
