Covering up

Little girl bunny now has an apron, worked in Vineyard Silk Classic Bright White and Evening Haze.

Working from the bottom up, the ruffle at the bottom was formed with slanted Gobelin stitches over four canvas threads intersected by vertical rows of tent stitches.  The trim above the ruffle repeats the pattern on the bib:  two rows of framed Scotch stitches.  The main portion of the apron was created with an encroaching Gobelin stitch, which allowed me to include some shading that had been painted.

Then a collar for her dress was stitched in basketweave with white DMC cotton floss, trimmed with aqua Impressions that was used for the stripes on the boy bunny's jacket.  Her brooch was worked in a stem stitch with Kreinik #12 tapestry braid 002V and filled in with an oblong cross stitch with blue Kreinik metallic.

This is looking pretty--so fresh and spring-like.
