The squirrel pattern is such a favorite of mine that I purchased two more from the same designer: a turtle and a manta ray. While the Summer weather kept me mostly outside hanging out with my neighbors, the turtle and manta ray embroidery were slowly taking shape. Of course, later towards the end of Summer, they were joined by the squirrel! Turtle Manta Ray Squirrel
And suddenly we were at the beginning of a pandemic. Nowhere to go, just stay at home, work from home, eat at home, do everything at home. While browsing etsy, I found some really cool design styles and this little fellow stole my heart. You can find the design here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/608485517/mandala-squirrel-p486-embroidery-cross This was certainly a larger project than I had ever started before. I had to find some alternative colors, because I did not yet have all the floss colors from this pattern, but while I was working on this squirrel, I fell in love with the wonderful colors and the lovely pattern.
