A Little Embroidery

I worked on one of the Easter embroideries last night.  Not the one from yesterday's post, but the other one...with raw edge machine applique and hand embroidery.
 I decided to give the little bunny a blue jacket like Peter's, but I'm keeping him out of Mr. McGregor's garden.

I'm going to think about what next with this piece, but I find the stitching calming and may begin the other one tonight.

For you grandmothers out there, I told you I would post more about Toad Cottages and Shooting Stars-- check out my review here.


  1. This is lovely... the combination of machine + hand stitching gives a nice dynamic...

  2. I've owned Sunflower Houses for years... I love everything about it..will echeck out her other books! =-) I love the little rabbit applique/embroidery...and am excited to se what you do with the one you showed yesterday =-)

  3. Your little applique embroidery pieces are so charming! And I love the kittens. Isn't it amazing how fast they grow? Sort of a human life speeded up.

  4. ger - Thanks! I always need something to get me started stitching again.

    Debby - Sharon is very talented, isn't she? I love both her writing and her illustrations.

    I hope to get started on the other embroidery piece tonight and maybe to actually get to sewing eventually!

    Kay - Thanks! I love the peacefulness of embroidery and hand quilting. I'm never very good, but the process is such a relaxing one.

    Yes, our little kittens are really now cats. Still affectionate and loving and always looking for a lap!

  5. Sweet little piece, this. Definitely keep the bunny away from McGregor's garden!

  6. debra - Thanks!

    rian - McGregor is out of bounds. Bunny prefers eggs.


Good to hear from you!
