Finally, Mr. Kangaroo is finished.  I started him in 2009, shortly after returning from a trip to Australia.  He will be framed eventually.  Horrible pattern.  Way too many 3/4 stitches and weird back stitches to work on Aida cloth, would have been much easier on linen or evenweave.  I think.

He's very cute. Most kits available outside of the U.S. have Aida cloth. You'd be surprised how prevalent that is as a ground for stitching. Personally, I hate it and only use linen, evenweave if I must. I'm a snob that way. Then again, I don't really do cross-stitch anymore.

I agree re Aida. Once I went to linen and evenweave, I never went back.
