So far this is where stitching on the Color Version of my Squirrel is. Those green 'arms' reaching out there are bullions!!!!
I am using the same tree and squirrel shape, just reversed the tree and moved the sq. higher up. I am also using a 'lighter' hand as far as all the stitching is concerned, as compared to my first version, the Monotone Squirrel.
And this, below, is a picture of a Sleeping Beauty. The photo does not really do the sprawl justice. At. All.
