Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Bunnies Everywhere!

I'm working on a baby quilt that is just going to be delicious, if I do say so myself!  It will eventually have 12 blocks in the softest colors ever....embroidered on white baby flannel.  Here are a few that are finished.
The bunnies are in a soft brown color....
and the flowers are pastels or just a bit bright.
Most of the stitching is a stem stitch...
but there are also French knots and daisy stitches.
All of the bunnies are supposed to have..
a heart somewhere on them but I notice I've forgotten one or two...I'll be adding those before I put it together.  All the blocks are a different size but they all go together beautifully.  The pattern is Cherished Memories by Rabbits Haven.

You are doing a fab job. I don't do a lot of handwork anymore though I was a cross stitcher before I took up quilting so I appriciate the work others do.

Oh, I agree. The stitching in soft colors on soft flannel just adds a special element that - it says 'pet' me, love me, snuggle me. Just lovely.

It's amazing how such simple lines can have so much personality. They "feel" so tender...so kind, gentle.

Those are so cute done in the different colours. I just finished mine, but I used a pink/green variegated perle cotton to embroider my bunnies. You can see my finished quilt at http://ufosandubis.blogspot.com/2011/02/welcome-stash-manicure-followers.html
PS - I love your blog!
