House-Mouse takes shape!

There's a lot to be said about not being able to sleep. Although one can be tired in the morning, it's good for the stitching progress. :) I'm really enjoying seeing this piece take shape, but the 1/4 stitches are difficult on this aida. This one is woven tighter and stiffer than most I've used, so even with a nice sharp needle, it's slow going. Now I remember why this project was put aside.

As of right now, I don't care for the top of the apple. The green seems just a bit too straight across, but maybe it will look better with the outlining and the apple done. I've been surprised with things before, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed on this one.
