loving all rabbits equally

Remember I keep saying I'll write progress posts?  I am so crap at that.  BUT, I do have a progress post for you today... cue the excited cheers.  Oh come on, at least pretend you care!



More progress has been made on the Lynette Anderson needle case that I'm not sure I like.  This is the front cover, all finished.  The house was supposed to be a button but they are hideously expensive so I embroidered it instead and added in a rabbit sent to me by the lovely Sandra.  OK, so the rabbit is clearly a giant rabbit, but I love all rabbits equally, giant rabbits included.  

If you're thinking this is finished, you'd be wrong.  I still have the two inside covers to do, then the whole thing to assemble if I can decipher the atrocious instructions.



I thought I'd show you an update on the crochet rug too.  Turns out I couldn't be bothered to get it out of the bag!  Soon...

Did they let you on the plane with that hook? or did you just leave it at home and choose to do NOTHING useful this week?

It looks lovely, definitely all the better for the addition of a giant rabbit!

Your little house is darling and I'm sure when the piece is finished and put together it will look great. Love the bunny button. Adds a little extra.

The rabbit isn't giant....he's just in the front of the yard while the house is set back... ;)

I hate people who are sizeist against large rabbits - to them I say ... PATOOIE! :D The needlecase cover is quite cute - finish up the inside covers and get it done, then you can cross it off your list and you never have to think about it again. In fact - you should knock projects off the list that no no longer interest you, or which you aren't enjoying. It's awful working on things that you don't enjoy, when you have other ones that you DO enjoy :D

I think the rabbit sets the embroidery off just right. Like in stumpwork, the size doesn't have to be relative. Do you take any crafting to do on the plane when you travel? just interested if they allow needles etc again.
