First finish of 2010!!

Today I had my first happy dance of 2010!! And I not only finished the stitching but also finished it as a no-sew cube (the second one I do). Need practice how to make a nice bow, but I'm still happy with the outcome :)
I made a couple of changes in the thread color of the original design. I used Anchor 848 for the mice fur and all the parts that the chart called for DMC4200 I substitued with ThreadWorx 1094 (party time). As you can see in the pic on the left, I had stitched some letter with  DMC4200 but I wasn't sure I liked it so decided to look through my collection of threads and found this choice of ThreadWorx I like best for this design :)

Hoy terminé mi primer bordado del año!! Y no sólo lo terminé de bordar sino que hasta le dí un acabado, en este caso un cubo (el segundo que hago). Aún necesito practicar un poco cómo hacer un moño más bonito, pero igual estoy bastante contenta con el resultado final :)
Le hice un par de modificaciones a los colores del diseño original. El pelaje del ratoncito lo bordé con Anchor 848 y las partes del diseño que indicaba bordarlos con DMC4200 lo sustituí con ThreadWorx 1094 (Party Time), como verán en la foto de la izquierda ya había bordado gran parte de las letras con el hilo DMC pero la verdad no me convencía mucho y entonces decidí buscar entre mi colección de hilos otra opción y encontré este de ThreadWorx que me gusta más para este diseño :)
