No, this is not Brown Bunny that I am stitching for BAM 5 with Valie
but a beautiful Brown Bunny pinkeep made for me by Amy
for an exchange. Isn't this just gorgeous? It's much nicer than mine which I will show to you later in the week. It's stitched on 32ct Antique Ivory Belfast linen with DMC thread and the backing fabric is Blackbird Designs Moda. Amy personalised the stitching by changing the B to a C and adding both sets of initials and just look at that incredible bow! What a wonderful exchange - thank you so much Amy - I love it!
This morning's mail also brought me the prize that I won from the Stitcher's Village
July competition. There are eight charts, together with the Dinky Dyes thread packs and accessories! What a magnificent prize.
At long last I have made a start on the children's Christmas ornaments. The first one is a red and white pendibule which I need to personalise and 'finish'.
I have also been designing using my new Macstitch
software. I had forgotten what fun it is to have design software and I have been 'playing' and charting up some alphabets and motifs. If anyone is interested, I will make my charts available once I am satisfied with them. Needleprint
has a Infinity Library of Quaker Motifs in editable format together with the Beatrix Potter Chart and will be releasing more charts in the future. All of these are compatible with Macstitch and, of course, for the pc users among you there is also a software available for you.
Thanks for visiting
