Fly Stitch

I am doing Take a Stitch Tuesday 2012. (see my side bar for Sharons blog link)' I did both TAST 1 and 2 before. Not sure how I am going with this one but as the first stitch was fly stitch I decided to add a bit more stitch to my Father Christmas stitch I started before Christmas on the lines of Jude Hills stitchery. I think if you click on the photo you will be able to see the fly stitch acting a bit like a bag on his back.
Thrilled to find I had won some lovely fabric on Elizabeth Creates blog give away, I seem to enter a zillion give aways and very very rarely win, so I am thrilled to bits with this one.
I will have been blogging since 2006 near the end of this month so I must organise some sort of give away.
Thinking cap on for the next few days while I see what I can find.

I never would have thought of using it there, but it looks like it belongs there!
