Mr Raccoon

I took three books to Canada with me this summer and read none. Instead I spent a blissful time in the Canadian wilderness in the company of this precious raccoon.

(It was the Canadian wilderness: there were of course bears too. Of which, more in the next post!)

Isn’t he so pretty? I’d forgotten how much fun embroidery is.

My Mr Raccoon kit was a Christmas present from my dad (except, really from me in that I chose and bought it and then he paid me back, but anyway…). I bought him from The Workroom, Toronto’s finest purveyor of haberdashery and raccoons; he was designed and printed in Toronto by a Toronto-based screen-printer, Michelle Galletta at Kiriki Press. So all in all a very, very Canadian pursuit.
