"Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring; not even a mouse."

Well...evidently, this little guy did not read the story! ;)  Look at him in his little jammies. Too cute, huh?  And here is the entire block with some of the pretty fabrics from Le Petite Ecole  (OK, I didn't take French and looked it up...it means Little School).
A few changes from the pattern...I stitched his tail, instead of just an outline.  The letters were straight backstitch in the photos.  The pattern sheet showed the letters with a "font" style.   I used one strand of embroidery floss and a split stitch for those.
