Friday 28 th March 2014....

(Borrowed from Google Images)

I have been busy all day trying to finish my Easter Bunny project... its from Cross Stitch Collection magazine April 2012... Lesley Teare's design.  Here are the photo's..

Started like this..

Then this...

Then this, the front...

The back....

That is my Easter Bunny design I did to go with my Easter tree this year... ha ha but I still need to do the eggs to go on the Easter tree! 

I am pleased with the way this turned out, considering I really had no clue how to finish it! 

Oooh yes talking of Easter I have decided to participate in the Easter Egg Treasure  Hunt Hop this year!  I say this year as if I have been doing it years!! ha ha This will be the first year of participating!  How very exciting :)

This photo is from Serendipitous Stitching blog run by Jo who cant think of a better nick name.  HERE is the link.

Here are the details...
Easter which falls late this year, the weekend 18th - 21st April.  Serendipitous Stitching will be hosting my Annual Easter Treasure Hunt again.  Each participant posts a picture of something stitched on an Easter or Spring theme along with a letter Serendipitous Stitching allocates to them. Over the Easter Weekend everyone hops around like a bunny, finds the Mystery Phrase the letters spell out and reports back to Serendipitous Stitching with it.  Prizes for the lucky winners chosen at random.

Sounds great huh!! I am game!! :)

I am pleased to say my arm is feeling much better after resting it yesterday.  I did feel at a loose end doing nothing all day... but made up for it today!

I have been looking about stitching friends blogs... gosh there are so many lovely blogs out there!  And WOW I was looking for ages too!! I was like oooh where has the time gone! ha haa And I am in awe at all the lovely designs and projects people are doing.. there are a few who crotchet... I would love to be able to do this, I have tried but just could not grasp it.  I can knit... I dont do much really.. I love to stitch and make things... well more like experiment with things! ha ha ah  

Back to my stitching... 

Have a lovely weekend everyone :)

Sending smiles to you all :)   :)

EEEEEK!!! I have no idea what has happened to my words :(  
I have tried to sort it out but I am frustrated now as nothing is happening... lets hope tomorrow it reverts back to normal! 


  1. Aww beautiful bunnies and I love your finish so much..
    Big hugs x

  2. Your finish looks really much like a pinkeep!!! Yay, well done it looks fantastic!!! Right, I'm off to do a bit of house cleaning and then cross stitch!! :)

  3. How very sweet! I am participating in the Blog Hop too. :)

  4. Your finish is so lovely!! Well done! I'm soooo looking forward to the blog hop, too! Now - off to stitch.

  5. What lovely stitching and I do love your finished piece. I go looking at blogs so often and there are so many people who inspire me. Beautiful work and some blogs are just like a breath of fresh air. I try to make mine interesting and all, but it is lacking in so many ways. You keep up the great job on your blog as well as your stitching. Hugs and Colors to you.

  6. Thank you all so so much for your lovely kind comments... making stitchy things and not framing them is a totally new concept to me.. but I am loving it. I love the experimental phase I am going through :)

    Back to my stitching! Smiles to you all :)

  7. The Easter piece is just lovely and the finishing is just perfect for the piece, have a wonderful time with the Easter hunt and a great weekend

  8. Great bunny stitching and finishing.

    Thanks for the ad for the Blog Hop too. Your words went funny because you copied and pasted the text from my blog. If you copy from an actual blog the code picks up the background colour of the blog and proceeds to use that for the rest of your post! You can avoid this by pasting the text into a Word doc first and cancelling the formatting then copying that text into your blog post.
    Hope this helps!

  9. @Jo - Thank you for those tips!! I am still finding my feel and working out things, thank you for your help :)


How wonderful that you have popped in to visit me.
Thank You so much for taking time to leave a comment.
Smiles :)
