Brazilian Finish

 Vines around the tree.
Enjoyed stitching the leaves most of all.
 The hedgehog was stitched separately on a piece of muslin over 2 small pieces of felt.  First it was covered with rows of long and short stitches and then bullion stitches. Then I cut it out of the muslin leaving about 5 mm of material around it, tacked it down at the back and then stitched it onto the finished piece. 
I thoroughly enjoyed stitching Sylvia Murariu's Windy October and love the sheen of the Brazilian threads and the variety of stitches.  I'm keeping this one for myself!
