Dressing the shepherd

 I sometimes think that the Dotted Swiss stitch is a sort of copout stitch.  However, I think it works here on the green.  I stitched all the cross stitches using a Neon Ray in deep green.


Basketweaving around the cross stitches
 I started this but stopped because I thought the green stranded silk was too dark.  Maybe not now that I look at the picture.

After stopping the green, I started the face with DMC floss 950.  I think he needs 948 which I don't have around here.  Not the most satisfying stitching session.
