It looks like a rabbit!

I did lots of things today! First I finished the overskirt by adding the darker rayon "stripes" throughout the overskirt with the Anchor 816. Next I added Mill Hill petite beads 40252 in center of the flowers in both the over and underskirt borders. Then I added his hands and head using 4 plies of DMC 425. His pink 3727 ear and nose are also DMC. His eye is worked with blue 32 Pure China Silk, highlighted with white DMC, and outlined in black with Splendor. Lastly I put his whiskers on with white DMC. I am thinking maybe this is really a she not a he! LOL Next up is to work the wings!

Lovely! My personal opinion is that all the pet guardian angels are female. After all, they are all in skirts! I know, I know, some eras have men in even more elaborate dress than women but they all seem feminine to me.

Can't wait to see what the wings look like, Pat.
