Sleepy time

The Point of It All has a series of animal faces which can either be made into pillows or pajama bags.  I think the pajama bag idea is nifty and different as a present for children or grandchildren.  The 10mesh  canvas also means the project won't take a lifetime to complete like an 18mesh Christmas stocking.

I'm using a double strand of silk 'n ivory.  I could also have used  Trio, but I only stock a few colors.
The background is being stitched in the nobuko stitch.  The eyes are done in basketweave and continental.  I had originally selected fancy fur for the background but soon realized that the pattern stitch wasn't showing through all the fuzz.
