Otis, genus PlayWithMeDon'tIgnoreMe, was looking over my arm while I was working on Jean Scrimgeowr. Ignoring him doesn't help. It just brings on the tiny, WhatchaDoin' sneeze. Thankfully, they pattern shielded the fabric for the most part.
I hope Jean's little dogs (I'm assuming those are hers pictured in the first band) were better behaved than Otis while she was laboring over this piece. Although, it's hard to imagine a 10 year old sitting quietly stitching rather than out romping with the dogs. I know what my preference would have been at that age. Perhaps they provided the distractions that caused so many little glitches in Jean's sampler.
Peacock, trees and some unidentifiable animal.
