Goat Embroidery

This is proving to be a really fun goat! I hadn’t realized just how folksy he would be when I started or how colorful. When you have a blue goat, it stands to reason that he’s going to be kind of wild looking. Now he is finished, but there is more stitching to be done. The background needs lots of color and pattern to balance the heavy stitching on blue boy.DSCN0127 - CopyBefore I began the embroidery, I narrowed down my palette of floss, or so I thought. Now that I’m looking, I can see that I’ve got nearly the whole rainbow going on here. I love to see them all lined up.
