Day 10 of 31

Why yes, that is a giraffe butt! This is a reproduction of a Spanish sampler that was created to commemorate the arrival of a giraffe from Egypt to France in 1826. I was drawn to this as soon as I saw it because of the unusual subject matter.

Here's a photo of the original sampler. The colors on my finished product will be brighter/deeper.
