A little peek of things to come

Today I thought I would share a little sneak peek into some new stitchery designs that I"m working on. I'm hoping to get them finished by May 1st and have the patterns ready too. These are going to be so fun to make. There's something about sewing and doing simple stitcheries that makes you feel calm and happy. I don't know about you, but I'm ready for calm and happy!
So here's your little peek of things to come.

Here's my color palette I'm working with. I just love these soft, muted colors.
Oh, and of course a bunny picture. Razzy and Chloe just finished their lettuce and parsley. Yes... they eat out of a fancy dish with roses on it. Everyone, even bunnies should dine on fine dishes, cause every day is special.

Have a great week everyone. Check back on Wednesday.

bunny hugs,
This week IGF pretty dishes and bunnies to serve dinner to.

Hi Shell,

I can't wait to see your new stitching and patterns! I love your choice of colours. I'm in love with muted colours recently. I keep my DMC cross stitch flosses the same way like yours in those bobbins. :)

Stitching does bring me calm as well...

Have a fabulous week!

Shell -

Too cute! You need to let me know when the patterns will be ready. I'd love to carry them at The Quilt Shoppe! Have you seen the new Lecien Cosmo embroidery floss? I hear it's to die for! I'll be checking it out when I go to Market. Are you going?

I love the soft muted colours too :) Can't wait to see the finished work!

Razzy and Chloe have excellent manners :) If I give mine food out of a bowl like that, they'll step their paws on the edges, and flip the bowl over!
