Smalls SAL Bunny - March

Just about everything has got in the way of my stitching this month and I am having to check in to the Smalls SAL today with a little knitted design instead of an embroidered design.

I wanted to make this little bunny egg cosy as soon as I saw it on the Internet.  It is a design by Julie Williams and you can buy the pattern, which includes very clear instructions, from Julie via her Ravelry page.

Of course, not much use just one lonesome bunny cosy when you  have three grandchildren, so I had to make another two.

Great fun making these as the pattern knits up super quick and I managed to use more of my stash, therefore keeping to my self-imposed new year´s resolution of ....reduce stash levels urgently before scrap bag bursts.......  and I made one other bunny which can be seen next week if I manage to wake him up for a photo.

The Smalls SAL is hosted by Heather at Stitching Lotus, so if you would like to join us in stitching a little something each month, just click on my sidebar button and visit Heather.

Until next week,

Sunshine thanks

Someone definitely did it, not sure who, but a big thanks to all who sent their surplus sunshine to the north of Spain as we have actually had three beautiful, rain free days.  The same day that the sun decided to grant us its presence, I received a message from Kim at Wisdom with Needle and Thread telling me that I had won her anniversary giveaway of a lovely little scissor fob.  I´m sure you all know Kim´s blog but if you don´t, do pay her a visit and admire her pretty work and beautiful needlepoint shoes and tiny doll´s slippers - amazing.

I told Kim that I had made quite a few scissor fobs as gifts and had made one for myself, which got me wondering as to exactly where the thing could be hiding as I haven´t seen it for ages - years.. Deep in a drawer I found it, too pretty to be in hiding don´t you think?

I´m sure most of you recognise the `Stitcher´s Favorite¨ fob from The Sweetheart Tree. Here is the back view.

I stitched an `S´ in the middle instead of the cotton reel which was indicated in the pattern.

I added the four buttons and the tiny beads around the outside edges.  The pattern has a tassel which for some reason I didn´t make at the time, perhaps I will add it one day.

Such a pretty design, love the bright Spring colours... must get moving on my Easter stitching, I´m behind as usual..
 Until next week, happy stitching everyone.
