I can tell that spring is finally approaching--things are starting to bloom around here, I hear a nagging voice telling me that it's high time I thought about getting my vegetable garden started, and I have a strange compulsion to stitch chicks and bunnies.
Thank you all for your suggestions for bunny freebies--after much searching I discovered this Beatrix Potter-ish bunny on the gazette94 blog. I usually hate working on aida but I had this scrap left over from long ago and thought it was perfect for an Easter design. It's hard to believe that I used to stitch almost exclusively 14 ct. aida--it is almost painful to use it now!
With spring being in the air I have been unusually scatterbrained too--I have no less than 5 small pieces going simultaneously, the bunny being one of them. Three are for exchanges and the last is a new LHN that I have put so few stitches in it is really not worth showing. I have managed to make some progress on my Quaker Row. Does anyone else think the squirrel looks a little crazed? My DD had a "pet" squirrel we used to see all the time in the local park that she named Rabies, because he would always let us get a little too close to him, and would chatter and run up and down the same tree like he was being chased by something. This squirrel and Rabies definitely have the same nutty (pardon the pun) expression...
For some reason the kids and I were discussing our favorite blog dogs the other day (you know who you are, Happy, Rory, Abby and Teddy) and they asked if our pups could be my blog dogs. The problem with photographing my dogs is that they will without fail stick their noses directly into any camera they see, which makes it somewhat difficult to get a good photo. Julius, on the other hand, is much more willing to pose for a picture, so we decided to designate him official Blog Cat. Look for Julius updates in the future!
That's all for now folks! Thank you for all your comments on this and other postings and have a great stitchy week!
