A little squirrel...

and some Slow Sunday Stitching!

Lately, I've really been enjoying some simple embroidery combined with patchwork, so when Kathy shared this Tiny Christmas Runner in her post last Sunday (designed by Gail Pan), I knew I would need to make it!

Earlier in the week, I printed off the design and traced it out.  It only took a few evenings to stitch up the fun little shapes in a variegated red DMC floss that I had.


Since I just *happened* to have some Christmas fabric scraps out on my cutting table, :) I quickly sliced off the strips I needed for the patchwork, sewed everything together, and there it was!


For my Sunday afternoon stitching, I'll be adding some hand quilting to this little piece and maybe even sewing on the binding!


Thanks, Kathy!  Sharing at Slow Sunday Stitching over at Kathy's Quilts

I too printed it off after seeing it on last weeks Slow Sunday stitching post! It is a very cute project. Good idea to add some stitching to the rest of it. I look forward to seeing it finished (no pressure!)
