A Little Selfish Stitching

While preparing for my upcoming stitching retreat, I decided I needed a needle minder. So the other night while watching the All-Star Baseball game, I stitched up this little guy. I did most of the finishing that same night and fine tuned it last night. He is from a free pattern found here. He is stitched on 40ct. Lambswool, over 2, with Crescent Colours Plum Paisley, which I received from Jen R. in my HoE Pinkeep Exchange. I took his picture next to a pack of needles so you could tell about how big he is.



He has super duper magnets on both the front and the back so he can sit on a magnetic board. I think he turned out kind of cute!
