Briar Rabbit

Photobucket


Very little stitching has been happening here this week, so my rotation has gone a little awry, but I am stitching my Quaker cherub by AMAP.

I have done some finishing though and this is one of them, this gorgeous Briar Rabbit is by La D Da, and I have stitched him on unknown count linen, (I think its 30ct) on an unknown colour, but I just loved it and thought it looked fine, he's stitched 1/1 using the recommended DMC, the backing fabric I have used for this is the same as the one you can see him lying on. I've used glass headed pins in a sagey green and mottled gold and dull brown cording which matched the alphabet stitching.

Thankyou for your encouragement re: my rotation I do appreciate it as I do each every comment and visit. ( Helen - you cheeky thing, I had to laugh when I saw your comment about the fox and rabbit and yes, I have promised Mark I will pick it up again soon(ish) LOL!!)Hope you all have a great weekend, I'm off to Fobbles again tomorrow, but this time its an open stitching day - anyone want to join us? I think I will take my SB ' Sail Away and play catch up with it.

A lovely rabbit pinkeep Su. Have a great day at Fobbles stitch-in - I would join you but I would have to make it a spend-in not stitch-in!

OMG, Su, what a nice little finish. I love this design and have never seen it stitched over one. A great idea and the result is great, too.
Oh, I'd like to join you at Fobbles but it's just a bit far from here, lol. I'm reading a mystery with the setting in the Lakeland instead, so in my thoughts I'm up there, too.

Vee said...

I love your Briar Rabbit pinkeep. It made me smile when I saw it because I have it right here on my desk contemplating if I should start it now or choose something else. Maybe this is a sign that I should stitch it.

Lennu said...

Oh I love this one, so cute and what lovely colours! I took a moment and read through your blog, I've been "a bit" behind in blog reading :) Your work is always gorgeous and so are your photos.

The pins and needles needlebook is wonderful, what a great idea to make a finish like that. But your spring exchange for Barbara is absolutely my favourite! You've done wonderful job with it.
