Woodland Creatures - The Hare

I posted here about my early progress with this cross stitch kit back in May when the poppies were just coming out.

Since then we've had an absolutely baking hot Summer which has been too hot to do anything involving  much yarn, so I've had the perfect excuse to leave crochet and knitting alone whilst I've worked on this instead.

The kit is the hare which is one of the woodland creatures designs by Karen Carter, designed and produced by Heritage Crafts.

All of the threads are included and there are two really good sized charts, one for the cross stitching and one for the back stitching, so it's really clear what to stitch where.

I particularly enjoyed working on the grasses and flowers, or are they weeds? The additional back stitching really brings the whole thing to life.

I'm tempted to make one of the other designs in this series too, maybe the fox or mouse, to accompany the hare once it's framed. For now I'm just pleased that I managed to pick up a kit and both start and finish it in the same year, I don't often do that.
