A Rabbit For All Seasons

Back to something simple…I had stitched up two of these earlier (during past two years or so) and as I was organizing I came across the other two..spring and summer…I decided to get them done..I had already finished fall and winter. These are done with stitches that are used frequently…stem, lazy daisy, french knots, plain straight, etc. .  The designs are from bustleandsew.com . She has some wonderful designs you can download in .pdf  form. For me they are simple and cute. Below are the pictures of the two I finished …autumn and winter…


    As you can see most of the stitches are fairly simple.. Forgot to mention the “turkey stitch” for the tail. Once you get that down it is fun to make a fluffy tail out of it. Here is the a picture of “Spring” a work in progress..Although in the original drawing the tail is missing. I am going to put a small hint of one in and guess why? My tracing got messed up right where the tail could go so why not! 

    I am one of those people who like to tackle the harder things first and sometimes that gets me into trouble..I will get frustrated and overwhelmed…so I “need” to take a break and do some small and quick stitching…One of the downsides for me is that I have machine sewing I enjoy also and it is driving me crazy having all this sewing related ideas and projects hanging about in my brain and then ones I have to finish that are just lanquishing to be finished. I love looking at what I have made it makes me relax and smile! Ahhhh! Being creative is the best! After I finish these I have a challenge for myself that I will be tackleing. I had asked “someone” to draw a picture for me and she asked me how it was going with it and I had to tell her I was still in the thinking stages and that was almost two years ago…I am so slow..well I finally got an idea of what I am going to do and will share that later on ..hopefully sooner…

   

Love to hear comments...thanks!
