Spring is coming . . . SPRING IS COMING!!!

We're getting close . . . hang on!

While you're waiting for Spring and dreaming of warmer weather, gardening and jelly beans . . . here's a little stitch piece to help foster those dreams:

Although the legend says to use DMC-white for the bunny tail (which you could), I used Wisper thread (W88).  It's a fuzzy mohair blend thread I happened to have on hand.  I just didn't want you to buy ($3.50-$4.00 for 20 yards) for such a small stitched area.  It is nice to have on hand though for beards or animals . . . your choice.

The sun is shining here today and the temps are slowly climbing . . . supposed to be 58 degrees today . . . sounds like Spring to me!!!
Hoppy Stitching!

  2. Great inspiration, Bon! It's cloudy and dreary here. We still have snow on the ground. Hoping for a melt away this weekend. Heard we can expect 50's by the end of the week.

    I am so glad I saved my Wisper thread. You are right it is perfect for little bunny tails. Hmmm, maybe I'll use it for the sweet deer in your Fields of Clover.

      The Wisper would be great for the white tail deer! ~*

  12. Thank you for the free cross stitch pattern...I am unfamiliar with GAF threads...where would I get them or is there a way to convert them to DMC colors?

    1. Not sure why my cross-stitch program calls The Gentle Art threads GAF. Here's the conversion to DMC:

      Baby Spinach - 469
      Antique Rose - 223
      Harvest Basket - 612
      Portabella - 840
      Old Purple Paint - 3860
