Or, you can do as I am in the photo above and cut out the basket, bunny and egg pieces and trace to cotton fabrics backed with fusible web and press to backing fabric. I am going to use some of the new threads that I received from TheGentleArt. I love the names of the threads. The brown thread that I will use for the chocolate bunny is appropriately titled "Dark Chocolate"! The lighter brown that I'll outline the basket with is called "Maple Syrup". Makes me think that since we live on Maple Ridge that perhaps there are some trees we should be tapping for syrup! The colors that I will use for the eggs are Butternut Squash, Blue Jay, Rhubarb, Grape Leaf and Punchberry. Most of them sound good enough to eat except that Blue Jay. I would think that pretty soon there will be a few Blue Jays in our backyard. This morning I could hear the Cardinals singing some spring love songs so little birdies are coming soon. :-) Even the black has a cool name - Black crow. There are always a lot of them around as there is a marsh area across the street and they love sit in the tall grasses out there. Instead of cotton fabrics, you could also do this piece in wool or woolfelt. Just get creative!! And if all you want to do is color the picture, that's all right to!! Print it out for the kids and keep them busy while you are cooking for the Easter weekend.
Here's a little update on previous projects..............the snowman couple are still in progress although the Tea Time heart stitchery is finished. I am almost finished stitching the Irish Blessing and now here I am starting this one!! I will probably finish both of them this weekend but the Snowman couple will continue to be a "work in progress". All of these designs could be placed in an 8 x 10 frame so I am on the look-out for a really cool frame where I could change out the design each month. I'll bet I'll find something at spring garage sales or the next thrift shop stop I make. LOL!!
Now it's time to post tea and goodies...........Yum!!!
