Be Kind To Animals - Lizzie Kate

Hello Peeps!
A quick post to show you my latest finish.
This is WIP 3/15 done.

Be Kind To Animals
My model was stitched on Sewitall 16 count aida fabric
Clay colour
Worked 2 over 1, using DMC threads
Used the keyed colours
Swap 580 for 581.
This is how I left it back on the 16th Jan
And here it is finished

I actually unpicked the B and stitched it again
with a different colour than the one recommended

I have omitted what looks like a turtle tail/poop...
as it was charted in a different colour to the one used for the turtle and it looked rather odd.

Thought it would look nicer without it.
