A Big Rabbit In A Big Dress

This rabbit's dress is going on and on, but I'm getting there. It doesn't help that I'm not stitching much during the week but I did get some done last night.

Ah, 'Tis Spring - 9 April 2010

I've managed to stitch around the pocket (pocket and carrot is done in two threads) and I think it's having the effect of standing out a little more than the dress.


I'm loving the thread colours which are a combination of Crescent Colours, Weeks Dye Works, and Gentle Art. The original design is done in DMC. I'll be listing what threads I've used when I complete this project if you're interested in using the same.


Thanks for dropping by and sharing my journey on this sweet project. Your comments are always appreciated.

All that blue does look a bit daunting, but your making great progress. I can tell by just looking at the photo that the pocket is standing out a bit more. Can't wait to see it all finished.
