Just one of those evenings when you need to fiddle with something, but inspiration has escaped and ran down the road.
I went to search through my laptop for my "things I must try" list and found nothing that inspired me there. But then, accidentally, I clicked on the icon for my Cross-Stitch designer - I used to design and sell the odd Cross-Stitch pattern about 12 years ago.
So I was browsing through them when I found a group of Farmyard Animals that I had done. after a little editing, I printed out a pattern suitable for a C2C panel. I went and dug some yarn out of my stash and got to work.
Can you tell what it is yet? Oh yeah, a Duck - because I told you that already!
I put a photo on my Facebook page and got all sorts of random answers - a Mario Mushroom, Angry Birds, Pokemon, Christmas Tree (!!), Dragon.... I can see where most of them were coming from.
Oh, and an eye appears.
So, now I am deciding whether to pull it all out, just put it in the bin, or add a totally different coloured corner.
