Just a Little Cross Stitch

First, thanks to all of you who looked at the Mardi Gras photos.  Since Tues. is fat Tues. , I guess all the dec orating will need to come down on Wed.
  I have had a bug this weekend, cough, cough cough, that is the story of my life! It did give me time to do some reading and stitching.  I have two projects in mind.  One is the sampler,"This is the Day".  When I have more energy I will continue to work at getting all I need to do that lovely sampler.  Secondly, I have wanted to do Slicker Bunny.  In my opinion, an absolute perfect one for the Seattle area.  I went to my only linen source the other day and couldn't find the nice gray I was searching for. The chart says the linen color should say" a rainy day in April".  Carol at "Stitching Dreams " has given me two great suggestions so I will be ordering  linen this week.  Well, I can't be without a project so I looked through my Spring charts and found this delightful one "Bunny & Co". by With Thy Needle and Thread. It is a lot of fill stitching but I love the way it is turning out.The bunny and egg cart alone would make a cute spring ornament but I'm doing the whole chart.
I have thought of those of you in the NE this week-end and hope you are safe and staying warm. I wish all of you a great week ahead!






The linen is lighter than the photo but we seem stuck in a bank of fog so it is difficult to get a good picture!
Thanks for joining me today!

  3. Oh, I love that one, Barb--I have it in my stash, too. Perhaps yours will inspire me to pick up mine and get started.

    I'm feeling your pain with illness--blech! I sure hope we both feel 100% very soon :)

    Glad I was able to help with fabric suggestions--hope they work out for your Slicker Bunny finish!

  12. Oh Barb, what a wonderful choice for a spring stitch. It looks so cute, the little bunny with the egg cart. And it certainly is much fun to stitch it.
