Just in case you were still having visions of poor Vixen having been chopped in half with blood spurting out, here is an updated progress photo. (No animals were harmed in the making of this piece...lol.)
I'm amazed at how quickly I am making progress on this one and also how small it is. I didn't realise they are so tiny as most Mirabilia's/Nora Corbett's are fairly big. I am stitching it on Crafty Kitten 16ct 'Icicle' aida which is proving to be a lovely fabric to stitch on.
