IHSW October!!!

I know I said that by this time this week I'd be either close to or finished the stupid bunny....Well I'm not! Ha ha! I had a good amount of time Sunday for IHSW and worked solely on the bunny for the RR.

 I am getting there with it and before this I hadn't picked up a needle for a week! Not because I didn't want to believe me I can't wait to see the back of this bunny, but because I'd injured myself!!! It's always a risk to ten pin bowlers that something goes wrong and you can tear the skin off your thumb, I did but rather than like a normal person and stop I kept going until I couldn't physically get my thumb back in a ball! So stitching was out the window until it healed!

Close up of the flowers. I jumped up to do them because the monotony of the other colours was getting to me! Having never stitched with satin threads I was quite excited, my word the effect is very pretty but for love nor money can I get the thread to sit well! I did eventually figured out to keep it really tight and a little thread heaven works wonders!!!

Hopefully this is it though the final stretch! Have the next piece sitting here waiting on me to work on it. Egyptian theme!!! Something I would actually stitch!!! Maybe I'll stop being a moan on this one lol!!!

Good Times!

Even if you're not done with the rabbit, it still looks like a pile of stitching got done, and the project looks like it'll end up being really cute, too! Plus, the color scheme is quite pleasant- I love how bright it is. Still, I can understand wanting to have something done because the next project looks way niftier, so good luck on your way to your Egyptian project!
