One Done Bunny

I finished my freehand stitching of the bunny.  It came out ok. And I mean just ok. I was tempted to restitch but the Peanut liked it the way it came out. 

Here you can see I added a pom-pom that I found lying in the craft drawer to give it some dimension.

Maybe I should have not left so much white space.

 I stitched the felt first and then sewed the felt to the fleece.  I thought about a blanket stitch. Didn't do one though.

I think next time I should plan ahead!

I have stitched felt to fleece before and didn't run into any problems.  This time however I noticed the fleece fuzz coming up through the stitches.  I don't know if there was anything I could have done to prevent that. It isn't noticeable at a distance but up close I can see it and it bugs me.  Maybe I need a less nappy fleece.

I've got a few other stitched things that I've finished in the past few days.  Here's a bird I did up yesterday in a pinch.

Nestled In The Branches

I am in love with this fabric.  So far my MIL has made me two throw pillows and a quilt for my wall. I even Macguyvere'd a slim curtain for the window in my hallway.  I'm down to just scraps now. I did a few accent stitches on the bird, leaves, & branches and added a few french knots for depth.  I also stitched the words "Blue skies, smiling at me..." but those will get picked out and redone.

Here's my first redwork piece.  The pattern (which I found at Flickr) is called Robots in Spring by Sibling Craftery.  There's much more to the pattern, I've only grabbed one robot. :)

All Our Base Belong To Us

I'm also working on another stitch book. Pics of that soon! 


  1. Oh my goodness... that bird fabric is gorgeous! The embroidery gives it just enough dimensionality to really make it pop. :)

  2. I LOVE your bunny and the bird is beautiful! Such fun to have found your blog, Catherine x

  3. Thank you both for stopping by and saying such nice things! :)
