Snowball for Thearica

This is my snowball for Thearica. She wanted a hexagon in the theme of "Pigs on the Farm" -- think Charlotte's Web. I took an embroidery design for a pig from http://www.french-knots.com/cute-pig-embroidery-transfer-pattern/ and made an applique pig of some thin light pink linen. Then I accented the little guy with some embroidery. The fence is from a decorator fabric. The tree is chikan embroidery that I am learning in a class. There is a spider's web which is difficult to see in the picture, but it is made from a sparkling gold thread. The spider is dangling near the pigs tale. I also put a bullion embellished vine on the fence. I think he is cuter than this in person. Maybe I will try to get a better picture in the light tomorrow. If you single click on it you can see it better.

Oh my goodness! He is fantastic! You got mine done a little earlier than we said ... I will get on yours as soon as possible but it may be after mid-month before I can mail.. We had said the end of April... but it is ok.. I will try to get finished early too. :)

I LOVE it!

Thank you so much!

Such a cute picture. Love that pig and the spider wanting to tickle hem. Great idea to use the chikan embroidery!
