The Wolf is finished! 45 Hours

As you can see, the stitching is complete on Peter's wolf. I misplaced the charm, so will pick that up at Michael's when we go this weekend.

I already have the mounting board and will need to have Peter choose his frame. I plan to wash and iron this piece before adding the charm to it.
My goal has been reached. I wanted to have all the stitching finished on this piece by the end of January. I made it!

24 Hours...

Here is the wolf at 24 hours. As you can see, it is coming right along. There are a few mistakes (done when I was extremely tired) but they are staying. I was going to frog them. Peter likes the piece the way it is and says that his will be different, which is "good." (His way of telling me that I did something "cool.")

I am still working on this almost daily, although I hadn't posted this scan. I am currently up to about 26 hours , possibly 27, but am not yet ready to do a scan.

2006 Progress on the Wolf

Well, as you can see, the frog got me a little, but he is easily put away..LOL Glad I caught my mistake when I did.

Anyway, the total hours for this piece for 2006 is about 18 hours, give or take a little. I am really bad about actual time because I tend to get up and cook, eat, stretch, etc. During the stitching time.

Anyway, here is the wolf so far. I have every hope that he will be completed by the end of January.
