Spring Bunny Love

I had this lovely design in the "to do" pile.  Spring has sprung (FINALLY!), so was inspired to get it out and stitch it up.  It's a freebie from Snowflower Diaries called "Spring Bunny Love".  Isn't it darling?!

The back is a lovely peachy moire.  I ruched the ribbon (a first for me ;)) - then stitched it to the ornament. There are alternating white and peach pearls to enhance the ruching.

Now off to work on a Christmas stocking!

Keep yourself surrounded by stitches ~ Cheers ~

Tiny German Folk Slipper

I finished this darling little German Slipper from Thistle Threads.  It's stitched on 36 count light exemplar linen.  From heel to toe, the slipper measures 5.25 inches.  The design from arch to toe measures 2.5 inches.
It's perfect to hold my scissors!

Keep yourself surrounded by stitches ~ Cheers ~

I Love Strawberries!

I've always loved strawberries.  When I was small, Mom, Dad and I went on a vacation to Florida.  I baffled them both by eating only ham sandwiches and strawberry shortcake from Illinois to Florida and back.

I picked up this little cutie from Sweetheart Tree a couple of years ago and it's finally finished.  It measures 3x2.5 inches, 4.5x4 inches framed.
When I look at it, it reminds me how sweet strawberries taste and fills me with memories of laughter and love.

Keep yourself surrounded in stitches ~ Cheers ~
