This pig has made me smile all the way while making her.
Isn't she adorable? To me, she seems like playing peek-a-boo. I got this pattern from maddiethekat, to add to my animal tapestry collection. It measures 5.70 x 4.00 inches (14.5 x 10.2 cm).
It uses 38 different colors, total of 6,840 delica 11/0 beads. I hope this little piggie brightens your day.

                                               Happy Fourth of July!!!

I finished this giraffe tapestry today. It measures 2.80 x 4.40 inches (7cm x 11 cm), using 17 colors of 11/0 Delicas, a total of 3,344 beads. I learned some facts about giraffe. Their average height is 15-17 feet tall (wow, 3 times my height). The giraffe has one of the shortest sleep requirements of any mammal, which averages 4.6 hours per 24 hours (just like me). Healthy giraffe lives about 25 years in the wild.
