Rabbit season.....

When I came across the Mosey'n Me free chart called Hare's Another Rabbit on Patty's blog, I loved it. Then I saw it again at Miss Linda Lee's and that was it...I had to make this one for Easter.


I decided to work on it while I was online talking to my mother each evening on Skype. I figured I would be able to finish it easily on time since we talk for at least an hour each day.


I already had decided that it would look adorable in a frame I had bought to paint and use for my Dagi sampler wall. I will just look for another frame later for those cat samplers. This frame was just too perfect for this little rabbit picture.


I used 30ct. Apple Brown Bindy R&R Linen for this one stitching 2 over 2. My eyes need a rest. Then I used Crescent Colours Roasted Chestnut to create a milk chocolate bunny. You see, I only eat dark chocolate so this will prevent me from biting his cute little ears off. Then I used Carrie's Creations floss Olives to create the little gingham border on two sides of the design. That was just a little deviation on the original design to work well in my frame.

So that's it...rabbit season has begun! Just in case you are not in a holiday mood for Easter here is Peter Cottontail which I played over and over to drive my mother nuts with. *grins*



Note: I am so sad that I am not able to comment on any WordPress blogs. It refuses my comment until I sign in but I am not a WordPress member. I hope this problem is solved soon but wanted to let people like Lillian, Amy and Barbara know that I am not able to comment. Is anyone else having this problem?

It sure came out cute and I love the frame. We kept talking about you not liking Milk Choc. so the bunny was safe. LOL.

Your little rabbit is lovely. I don't have a Wordpress blog but I just registered with them so that I could comment, it's free and easy and I've had no problems.

I love the milk chocolate bunny (I don't like dark chocolate, so he wouldn't be safe around me).

Sorry there are problems with Wordpress.

Such a sweet finish ~ and the frame couldn't be more perfect!! I haven't run into any problems with wordpress blogs, I may have registered and just don't remember.

It's been awhile since I had time to stop and say hello Heidi. Love your rabbit and I remember the song from childhood so fun to hear it again. I myself only like milk chocolate though! I was wondering how your eyes are doing and if the disease is still in an active phase. I keep hoping things will settle themselves soon for you. I've been busy stitching and quilting, I am currently binding a king-sized reproduction quilt I finally finished - OMG what a job that quilt was but I love it. Happy spring Heidi! (P.Sl I created a Wordpress account just so I could leave comments but I'm also having trouble).

I always loved singing that song when I was little. And your bunny cross stitch is so cute. You asked about my Easter tree... I used to have egg ornaments that I made from egg shells, but over the years those have all broken. We blew the egg out of a tiny hole and then cleaned the inside and decorated and dyed the eggs. I also had a Polish wax dye resist egg. Maybe now that I don't have little children anymore, it would be safe to make some more.

Wooow, haven't heard this song for years! Only insiders know it here in Germany. Thanks a lot!
Greetings, Gabi
