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!
