Tullie house beastie

I got another lovely surprise yesterday, this time by email. Caroline, on of the participants at the Tullie house workshop last weekend, sent me a picture of her finished beastie.


The very neatly embroidered Latin was provided by her son peter, and translates as “here ( is ) moss with his bone”. The pose was based on that of the leopard from my Noah’s ark, and works splendidly for a collie.

I’m chuffed to bits to see this finished( and Ann’s unicorn- I’m noticing a trend that people who base their designs around their dogs finish quickly).

And here’s the handsome fellow who modelled for the embroidery

  1. He’s lovely! But that looks suspiciously like cannibalism.

  2. I’m with you – I think he stole a ham from the butcher – he has a slightly larcenous glint in his eye!

  3. What stitch was used to get that line through it?
