A little prairie rabbit

Howdy all!~ With the hopes of Spring starting to bud, ( and all of you know how bad I've wanted Spring) I was in the mood to do a little Easter/Spring stitching. Here is my finish from this weekend of the April Square taken from A Prairie Year by the Prairie Schooler. I decided to finish it into an ornament and added some lace at the bottom. I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do for the hanger so I just use the same pink and green from the design and made a two color cording. I thought it needed a little "pop" of color. On the back I just used a white on white print of little clusters of leaves. I used a 28 count lugana and the recommended DMC floss.




I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I hope it was filled with lots of dreams of Spring. It is coming sure enough! Thank you all for all of your wonderful comments and kind words ! I do so look forward to reading them! Thanks so much for visiting and come again reall soon!!
'till next time,
Happy stitching!
