Doodle Stitch A Long Week one

I finished my little gnomey stitch a long project :)It's been a while since I've done any embroidery other than cross stitch, so my stitching is probably not as neat as it could have been but hey I still like how he turned out.This week has been full of grey and rain days, I love the rain so actually I don't mind, but it does make photographing anything quite difficult so the pictures are a bit fuzzier than I would have liked but never mind.I added a circle, cut from a scrap of felt, to the back to hide all the stitching on the reverse, and attached this with a line of running stitch in the same green thread that I used for some of the actually detail on the design.I think he's so cute, and he's my first completed project of 2011 :) Am looking forward to starting on week twos design soon :)

That's so dinky. We're having the same weather here too, grey, wet. dull, windy and chilly. Hopeless for taking photographs, but great for staying inside in the warm and stitching.
