Hand embroidered picture featuring a close-up study of a Hedgehog.

The inquisitive little face of our prickly nighttime visitor has been carefully stitched by hand with individual strands of embroidery thread. Various shades of greys from black to pale ash were used to emphasise the contours, and silver thread represents the whiskers.

A smart black frame sets it off nicely. I photographed the work without the glass to avoid reflections and in natural light to show it as clearly as possible but I'm sure you know that screens etc vary. The piece of stitched work is about 33x33mms and the finished item is just over 10.5x10.5cms. With the glass in place, it's ready to hang or display.

A thoughtful gift for a gardener or a fan of hedgehogs!


A welcome, if secretive, visitor to our garden, the Hedgehog is a firm favourite!

They are intriguing animals, with their ability to curl up defensively into a spiky ball, and their hibernation through the winter months. I hope they've found enough in the garden and local hedges to see them through to Spring.
