Earlier this month we said goodbye to our girl Lea, one of a pair of ferrets we’ve had for about 6 years. She was a sweet angel baby, and her favorite pose was Flat. As flat as possible. She would stop mid-run to splay her legs back and put her chin right on the ground, stare into space for a bit, then get right up and be on her way.

This was my first time trying a thread painting-style embroidery - I watched one youtube tutorial of someone stitching an egg and just decided to go for it. To my eyes it’s not perfect, but I think it’s decent!
I tracked my progress in the Thing-A-Day February 2021 Craftalong, so here are a few days work!
The hoop is just the right size to hang next to our kitty paw prints on our pet memorial shelf. This project was sometimes difficult to make time for, but it was nice to spend so much time with her little face.
