Joyce let us know it was IHSW this weekend, but I didn't catch her post until yesterday, so I signed up, and here it is, the conclusion. :) Check out everyone else who signed up and her finishes at Random Ramblings.
I did get out Totally Nuts for my friend and this one is totally nuts! I didn't realize/pay attention to the fact I should have been stitching with one strand until it was far too late. The squirrels are supposed to be made from Smyrna cross stitch and they are, but they're quite.. ummm... dense.
The acorn tops are the beige-y brown blobs and they're stitched correctly with one strand over 2 and using Italian cross stitch. That was new to me and I had to look it up. It's almost like stitching a cross stitch and then backstitching the sides and bottom, but leaving the top open. And odd stitch, but it does look good as an acorn top.
I think another few nights will let me finish this off and make it into a needlebook. Then I'd like to finish off my Rainbow Butterfly for the Facebook group making quilts for the victims of the Orlando massacre.
Here's my start:
