Well its 4.02 am!! ha ha I know!!

I am wide awake!

I have been stitching ALL night... I loved the Primitive Hare design that much I just stitched it... non stop!

I still have to make it into something.. but the stitching has finished!

Here are some photo's...

Remember the chart... As shown on The Primitive Hare blog...

What I started with...

I found the material in a local sewing shop wit the ribbon too..  The Aida is hand Tea dyed by me...

And the finished stitch... I just put the material around it to see what it looked like...

Not sure how or what I am making the finished design into... so tomorrow (lol today!) I will play around with all the bits and bobs I have to hopefully come up with something!? 

I may take a look at Twisted Stitches blog as suggested by one of my followers :)

Its late..or early how ever you see it!

I should get some sleep!!

So until later.... lol when I have had 40 winks...

Smiles to you all! :)

Well I had a nice 40 winks and have thought more this morning on how I am going to finish this stitch from The Primitive Hare...

I have a sewing machine... its brand new.. I have had it about 4 years!! I know bad right! :(  Well I have never had the confidence to use it ...until now!

Tomorrow I am taking it around my parents home, and my mum is giving me a master class in how to use it!  I am really quite excited about it.

And yes I will take some photos's and of my finished piece too :)

Today I have been pottering about with the eggs for the Easter tree... for my friends... here is one..

I find making the Easter eggs quite therapeutic... really such a happy thing to make and yes makes me smile too :)

Some chores to do now... running errands in the car!! 

I have been stitching my Eastery design and wanted to show you something interesting...

The difference between no outline and with outline.. 

Brings out the cuteness..... you think?

One more letter and the first word is finished! Eeek its taking forever! But it is enjoyable and makes me smile :)

Falling alseep... I think its caught me up now the whole lack of sleep thing!  Ha ha no regrets staying up all last night as I loved the stitching.

Until tomorrow....
