I made myself a bunny brooch for Easter and no sooner had Nancy and Florence seen them than they had to have one , then Olivia ( my step daughter)
then I made one for a Swap-Bot partner
and a friend wanted one so I have completed his this week.
It really has been a bunny bonanza. I prefer the darker ones as I think the wool takes it's own personality better. The lighter fibres show up my (many many) mistakes and I find them harder to get to do what you want.
I made a couple of cross stitch bookmarks too last month, for my sister and for someone who does a lot of work in our community. I was quite pleased with the way they turned out. I got the flowers from an old Jo Verso cross-stitch book that I bought in a second hand book store and the letters I got from a HUGE free online resource here.
I just backed them with some scrap fabric and added a ribbon as the book mark.
I am toying with putting a few bits and bobs online , probably Folksy as I had a look and there are a lot of brooches, but none like mine. I think I will need to hone my technique somewhat. I love the bunnies and wear mine with pride, but as my Swap bot recipient said " thanks for the bunny, my sister is wearing it, she has a quirky style" ha ha ha ha ha!!!
