Bunny Sampler - Finish


Design - "Sampler Bunny"
Designer - Homespun Elegance
Fabric - 30 count WDW Putty
Fibers - WDW & DMC
Started - 27 April 2011
Completed - 30 April 2011





I'm not a big fan of French knots, but I decided to give it a go for the bunny's tail, and I think that it worked out and has the appropriate "cotton tail" effect.






Now what's next?  I've rummaged through my stash and pulled out several items.  I'll have to see what calls to me the loudest.  I may stay with bunny themed stitches for a while yet.

And what a glorious weekend!  I'm sure all the local nurseries rejoiced greatly - finally some sunny, warm weather.


My sister and I went to three different nurseries Sunday.  I'll post about that in more detail on Tuesday.

At home, Mr. Quail perched on the birdbath - looking to the left... 

and straight ahead...

...making sure that his lovely lady was safe from harm.

Those knots in the tail are just the perfect little detail. I love your stitching, and can't wait to get my copy of the pattern.
