Love One Another

Thanks to everyone that entered the Grey House giveaway... Kathy, the pattern is out in today's mail!

I've begun to take baby steps to achieve my goal of stitching up all the kits I have on my shelves... here's a wee start with...


Love One Another
Design and Kit by

The wool for the body and heart of this bunny was included in the kit... along with the unbleached cotton for his little soft tail. His face was backstitched with DMC. And, the message on the heart was also backstitched with DMC, then whipstitched in place. I stuffed him firm with natural cotton batting, so he is pretty heavy. Finished up 17" tall from the tip of his ears to the bottom of his butt and 7-1/2" wide. This was a quick project... taking only one afternoon from start to finish.

I'm thinking the next project is going to clear a larger spot off my shelf... I'm heading off to prep the next block for Wisdom House by Jan Patek. It's a BOM I started nearly two years ago... needleturn applique... here I come!!!! :-)

Until next time... stay healthy and keep on smiling!

:-)

  4. I really like the bunny and the saying, thought I would be tempted to place it on the body.

  5. I'm tired this evening and when I looked at the cute bunny, I said awww... I thought it was a kitty with long ears until I saw the tail. Duh... I think that by adding a long tail and shortening the ears, he could pass for a kitty for Halloween if he was made with black wool...
    Have a nice weekend. JB

  13. Sharon, a great finish. It's hard to catch a look of life in an animal face, but you sure did it. This has the look of an old prim. Congrats! Finishing things we loved when we bought them is a double delight!!!! ;)
