Well, I finished two of the Bunnie charts, but..

Prairie Schooler Bunnies
Done on 16 ct aida
Silkweaver Strawberry Milkshke
with called for DMC
Started 03/04/12 finished 03/12/12
I am not at all happy with the way my finish turned out.  They are both misshapen and just don't look very good.  Oh, well.  I am planning to stitch a couple more of these Prairie Schooler Bunnies on some navy fabric and make them into mini pillows.  I hope that turns out better.  So here they are for the record.  The picture looks very dark for some reason - GOOD!  maybe you can't tell how badly they turned out - LOL!


Tomorrow I am going to start to work on Welcome  Friends which is another older UFO.  I am not going to work on it exclusively like I did Peaceable, but I am going to try and get it done in the next several months.  I am also going to start and work on Lizzie*Kate's  March Flipit Block with charm.  I would like to get that series done this year.


I almost forgot to tell you - I am going to get to go to a Stitch & Gab this weekend with a group of ladies, some of whom I met at the PALS retreat in MB!  It is so nice to finally have someone local to stitch with!


I can't believe that I looked at the weather forecast for this week and it says its going to be in the upper 70's and hit 80ยบ on Wednesday!  That is very warm for this time of year around here.  Scary.


Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving such nice comments.  They really do make me feel so good.  Until  next time, have a happy, healthy, stitchy time!

Your bunnies are adorable! You are an inspiration by rescuing your old pieces from the UFO pile! I should do that too.

I think your bunnies look perfect. We are our own worst critics. Our weather here in Indiana is being very wonderful this week too. Hope you have a great week!

I think your bunnies are very sweet, Beth. I find doing pillow finishes much easier, too--that's why you see so many on my blog :)

Have fun at the Stitch & Gab--hope more stitching is done than I accomplished at my last get together with fellow stitchers. All we did was talk all afternoon :)
