out the drawing is actually by Mia Anthonia Fries Orsted, who commented it was a lovely rendering of her drawing and would like to post it on her pages, I was flattered telling her to feel free to post it.
Here is the embroidery I made from her lovely drawing below my embroidered rendition.

I was also quite disturbed that her lovely drawing was hacked, the color was removed and it was stuck on a site as a coloring page. I have used coloring pages a few times usually through a blog site that offered them free and I have purchased several from Etsy shops. I will need to be more careful when someone sends me something to stitch etc. my friend didn't keep track of where she got it so I couldn't link back or even furnish the site to the actual artist. I usually link back to whatever site, shop or store I have gotten a pattern etc. from and I will add the name of the artist when I know who they are.
I finished reading Ellen Stimson's book Mud Season, it was quite a fun read and had me laughing out loud at some of the passages and nearly through the entire chapter of the lambs.
http://pintangle.com/tast-faq So many of my embroidery is done using a few stitches: back stitch, stem stitch, running stitch and french knots, satin stitch and lazy daisy I found I forgot many of the other stitches so TAST is such a good refresher and I am trying to add more stitches in my pieces.
