It's Done!


Hurray - my bunny sampler is a WIP no longer!!! I finished all the stitching and cute little details yesterday evening. It's a pattern from Homespun Elegance - an old one from 2003!

Details like the topiary potted plant Bunny's holding - it's chain stitch~

Then his fluffy tail is done with colonial knots~

The colors are perfect for a soft spring day!

I was going through some patterns I've downloaded and came to this one by Primitive Betty's and just had to do it and make it into a pillow~

Simple yet lovely - I backed it in this Americana fabric - yes I love Americana!
So far this week I've been spring cleaning - one room done and too many still to clean!
I also got the lawn mowed today - oh the sweet scent of freshly cut grass!

Love to hear from you if you could spare a minute or two!
Have a blessed week!

  23. YAY, it is gorgeous girl, LOVE it!! I especially love all the details you incorporated into it! The alphabet pillow is so cute too, love the Americana back. =]

    Spring cleaning... yuck! This year I've been hit and miss instead of room by room so it has really thrown me off completely, lol. We've had nice weather since February this year so I've been outside working the yard a lot and neglecting the house. I can't seem to find that good balance, hehe.
