Endangered Species

Even though this is my 316th post (can you believe it?!) and in most of these posts I have shared pictures of the things that I have been creating I'm feeling a certain sense of vulnerability about sharing this set of postcards that I've made. Don't ask me why as I can't quite put my finger on it.

Maybe it's because the subject of this set is close to my heart and I really want to do it justice .....

Maybe it's because I've poured my heart and soul into these and I don't want anyone to not like them (don't get me wrong I know everyone has different tastes and what I like won't necessarily appeal to everyone, usually I can't accept this but not this time)...

Maybe it's because I know my drawing skills which formed the basis of the designs isn't great .....

Maybe it's because I haven't had much practise at free motion stitching.....

Maybe it's because despite the fact that they haven't all turned out as accurate as I hoped but somehow I still love them ....

Maybe it's because each took me a couple of hours and yet in many ways they look so simple...

Whatever the reason maybe I'm feeling nervous..... Here goes the three cards I have been making for an Endangered Species swap.

Red Squirrel

Polar Bear

Orangutan

Anyone who stitches can see the amount of work that has gone into these. The fact that you designed them yourself is amazing! They are sooooo CUTE!! I love them all :)
