I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

I - Ice Skating Hedgehog

10th April "I" Post
"Ice Skating Hedgehog"

Welcome to 10th April and posting Day 9 of the "Blogging from A to Z April 2015 Challenge".  It's Friday... and raining... but it's still Friday!!

Today is "I" - "Ice Skating Hedgehog"

Ice Skatingis moving on ice by using ice skates (the only time I ice-skated I ended up with a very sore and wet backside!)

Hedgehog: A hedgehog is any of the spiny mammals of the subfamily Erinaceinae, which is in the order Erinaceomorpha - in other words... a little cute and not so furry animal!

As I mentioned yesterday I don't have a current "I" WIP, which meant I had to think about what to stitch for this letter of the alphabet.  After looking at ice creams, icicles, Ink Circles (the designer) and ice skaters I finally settled on Margaret Sherry's "Ice Skating Hedgehog".

After some stitching last night while watching a couple of episodes of "Fortitude", this is what he looks like.

This particular design was originally published in the UK CrossStitcher magazine back in February 2009 (Issue 209).  I am stitching it on the last of my "Arabian Nights" fabric from Stitches and Spice.

Tomorrow is "J" Day and I am still thinking about what I will stitch on tonight to showcase "J".

Til next time.... Happy Stitching and Happy Blogging!
Hugs xx


  1. Good choice! I stitched this one too...it is really cute when it is finished!

  2. Such a great choice to present this lovely little guy for the letter I. I love all these little Margaret Sherry animals and will have to find some for me to stitch.

  3. What a cute design and nice start Noni.


  4. Ice skating and Hedghog, two phrases not often used together! But MS designs are always cute.
    How about something for a person whose name begins with J for tomorrow? Haha.

  5. love your stitches! esp the grumpy cat! i used to cross stitch in college - wish i had more time for it. happy to see yours!
