The final embroidery stitches have gone into the woollen blanket and the little 3D bunnies have been added. All that is left now is the backing and the satin binding.
This embroidery is from one of the very early Inspirations magazines (Issue 40). I have used pure wool blanketing from Country Bumpkin and I have used a mixture of threads, but mostly silks. This should keep some fingers and toes very warm this Winter.
I have also enjoyed working on one of Gail Pan’s sweet little Christmas stitcheries ( love her designs!). And for the first time I have used Aurifil thread. I thoroughly enjoyed stitching with it.
I have also purchased a few different threads for embroidery and love the colour ways.
These are from Cottage Garden Threads. The name, Peacock, is perfect for these colours.
DMC have a lovely line of variegated threads available in gorgeous colours, too. I couldn’t resist some of those.
Obviously, I have plenty of stitching ahead of me.
