A Hopp'in and a Swapp'in

Isn't this the cutest little image? I just love it. It originally was in color, but I changed it in my computer to make it more sepia toned. I'm participating in the ornament swap at Quilt and Stitch Marketplace (click here) and this image is going to be part of my ornament. I can't wait to show you the finished piece.
This was my little contribution to the art exchange I participated in. I made this little Friends Stitchery for Charlene at My Hearts Ease (click here). The crochet lace at the bottom is vintage and the those are glass pearls from Swavorski. I love those things!
Finally, I wanted to give you a sneak peak of the floss I'm using for the secret project at the 12 Days of Christmas Shop Hop. Remember, starting this Friday, November 27, visit my website each day for your FREE stitchery pattern. At the end of the 12 days I'll show you the finished project and there will be prizes! Be sure to visit Make Mine Pink (click here) to participate in the shop hop and win prizes there too! While you're at it, you can get all your Christmas shopping done without leaving home!
Don't forget Wild Hare Wednesday kicks off this week with some decorating Wild Hares! I'll be interested to see what your wild decorating hares have been!
bunny hugs,
This week IGF being one week closer to only working 2 jobs.

Love the picture of the bunny. Don't know what it looked like in color, I'm very partial to the sepia toned prints. The little Friends Stitchery is beautiful, those pearls are so pretty. Have a great week, can't wait for the Shop Hop. and okay, I can't resist that thread any longer.
