Show & Tell | Bunny Stitching

My lovely sister-in-law is totally cray-zy about rabbits and will be celebrating her birthday at the end of the month.  As she and my bro will be on vacation in the states at the time, we had a little early birthday dinner for Joanna last night.  Luckily I had planned this gift ages ago so I had given myself plenty of time to get it finished. So sweet right?  I love the whimsy of it and I’m SO glad I did it on grey fabric.  One more hoop gift to make then I need to get the needles clacking – I’m going to attempt a jersey for Nixon!  Bit scared actually.

Well, I bet some of you thought I’d never finish this one?

And, maybe I thought that too, but HA, proved us both wrong.

I really enjoyed this wee stitching project, I found it really cathartic punching holes in something over and over again {?}.  I’m not sure if the end result is pretty per se, but it’s definitely me.  I have it hanging above my computer as a little reminder to finish what I start, because finishing ‘stuff’ is something I’m finding very tricky these days! :::::pointing & whistling at you Nixon:::::

Next project already a-go-go, on a roll craft-nerds, I’m chasing ya x

{FYI, the metallic gold thread that I used for the crown was a major PIA and I will never use it again.  It was super rough and scratchy and didn’t like to be pulled through the fabric, plus it started losing it’s bling after being pulled through a few times – avoid at all costs}.
