Week Thirteen: Farm Fresh Bunny

The Prairie Schooler has always been among my favorite cross stitch designers and this little bunny is no exception. I love the use of colors and the simple beauty of Pamela Byrd Smith's designs (although stitching all that brown wasn't my favorite thing to do; is it just me or does anyone else get annoyed when stitching a lot of brown in a design?). This rabbit, from the "Farm Fresh" leaflet, was stitched on 18 count white Aida with DMC threads. Nothing fancy--just plain cute! I'm posting this week from a mostly sunny (but VERY windy!) Daytona Beach where I'm visiting my parents for a few days of relaxation by the ocean. Perhaps by the time I fly home to Pennsylvania the grass will have greened up and spring will truly be here...

I love your bunny finish, it's gorgeous
I have a thing about stitching blocks of white, i just don't like it at all
