Another from the old pattern pile...
Bad photo - photos were either too light or too dark.
I thought that the rabbit was going to be the off white that is on the right hand side, until I went to put the first stitch in. Decided to just stitch the pattern as designed, and then consider restitching or changing later...
Stitching on a scrap of 25 count that was big enough to do this one and the companion rabbit design next.
Actually - that little left hand side border that is strawberries, but to me looks more like radishes...
It looks like an expensive piece of ribbon when stitched. Truly beautiful. This photo does not reflect that.
Is supposed to have words and stuff stitched in some outside boxes - will probably stitch the boxes and think about it more while stitching the companion design next. Will be about 4 inches square when completed.
It has begun to rain 40 days and 40 nights here... well, it seems like that. It took out the router during the first storms. Modem and computer are fine, and a new router is on the way.
Finished watching Life on Mars, and Ashes to Ashes. Odd series ending - loved the series and characters, but I think it is just one of those that any ending would seem odd. You just sort of never want to leave the characters. Really interesting that between the US and British versions, even they didn't agree on endings and they end completely differently.
It is great weather to just watch tv and stitch away the night.
