One down, one to go
The little boy bunny is now fully clothed with a basket of Easter eggs to be delivered!
His bow tie was created with satin and tent stitches using two shades of DMC cotton floss. More Kreinik #12 tapestry braid 005 was used in a Leviathan stitch variation for his buttons.
The basket was worked in a woven stitch with Silken Straw Whiskey. Pink and blue DMC floss in a satin stitch created the Easter eggs.
I rarely throw away a thread package. and it's a very good thing! I remembered a thread given to me by the owner of my LNS back in Connecticut (pre-1998), which had just come out and was supposed to be great for creating Christmas trees. I frankly wasn't impressed with the tree application, and tucked the card away for a rainy day. It moved to Texas and finally Massachusetts, where some 18+ years later the card of Arctic Rays made some lovely Easter grass for my little boy bunny!
