The squirrel was a bit tricky to stitch in place, but I made it work. The tail is made out of turkey knots that I trimmed and brushed out. That's a fun step by the way. It's fun to snip away the uneven strands and see things even out.
The acorns and leaves were easily set in place.
The mushrooms perhaps aren't so exciting, but I really didn't want them to draw much attention from the rest of the piece.
I am not sure what's next, probably a bit of Christmas stitching. You've got to start early!!
