Happy Bunny Bunny Day

A little Spring/Easter finish -  Happy Bunny Bunny Day by The Trilogy.  I bought the chart a few years ago after seeing Nina's lovely finish, and decided right then that it would be my Spring stitching for that year.  As I had stitched it one over two on 40ct, which was a smaller count then listed, I was having trouble finding any buttons I was happy to replace the ones the design called for as they were going to be too big.  It was some time later before I decided on spider rose stitches instead and finally finished the stitching!  The fabric is Summer Khaki 40ct Newcastle linen.  I used the listed WDW and GAST, but think I may have substituted a couple of the WDW.  The fabric for backing the pinkeep is a little print from Blackbird Designs Blueberry Crumb Cake line, and the gorgeous bunny thread keeper was a birthday gift a few years ago from my friend Hilary - I love it!

Thank you for popping by and have a Happy Easter!  :o)

Magick Spells

Another Halloween finish!  It's been on my to do list for quite some time, and before that on my wish list for a while too, then one day I received a lovely surprise in my inbox from Maria of The Stitcherhood.  Maria had noticed two of her designs, Magick Spells and Stitcher's Samplers (still to be stitched) on my wish list, and very generously sent them both to me.  As you can see from the date on the scissor fob I stitched Magick Spells last year, but have only just made it up into a pinkeep.  I stitched the little scissor fob using a few of the elements from the design and added a little matching border.  I think it turned out really cute, just measuring a little over one and a half inches across.  I've stitched them both one over one, and although you probably wouldn't have noticed a difference I substituted the listed DMC threads for GAST Onyx and WDW Carrot.  The fabric is 28ct Jobelan Hot Potatoes from Polstitches, which I've had in my stash for several years.

The fabric for backing the pinkeep has a tiny pumpkin print and is from Seasonal Little Gatherings by Primitive Gatherings - I just love their fabrics with these tiny little prints!

Thank you for popping by.  :o)
