Anne Stradal has painted and stitched a penguin in honor of Cinco de Mayo, which we take very seriously in my part of town. (Austin) Independence of Mexico from France.
She has just finished this one, and as always, her simplicity in choices of stitches and the great combinations of thread textures, work together to create a charming ornament.
If you haven't already seen this one, be sure and visit The Cape Stitcher. Anne's penguins have more personality than any I've ever seen!
Pedro, now two days post "Cinco," looks like he's still tired but happy from exhausting celebrations.
