Lots of "Stitching" Going On

I liked this little basket stitchery so much, I stitched it a second time. The first one is at the quilt shop for a sample. I hope the person I'm sending this one to will like it. It's a bit hard to see in the picture, the dark brown and pink is a churn dash block.
I'm up to date on the bunnyhill redwork blocks. I have to stitch each one as they are posted otherwise it doesn't take long before I fall behind....I'm sure many of you know how that goes.

Since the next couple of weeks I'll have limited access to email and internet, I've picked this little project to stitch in my liesure time while enjoying the warm sun. Hopefully I'll have all the blocks done and ready to be pieced. I found the sweetest background fabric called Frosted Dots, I'm going to enjoy spending time in the sun with these sweet bunnies.

All my scattering moments are taken up with my needle. ~Ellen Birdseye Wheaton, 1851

the pillow sure is cute, I rarely do embroidery and need to practice some before I do much of any.

That churn dash/stitchery pillow is just too cute. You always do such nice work. Looks like you are taking along a nice project to work on while soaking up some sun. If that frosted dots is by Lakehouse, I have some of that in my stash...nice fabric. Enjoy your stitching time.
