April FAL weekend – KarenV

I finished up this cute design by Ewe and Eye and Friends into a pinkeep for the FAL this weekend 🙂 It’s called Brown Bunny; I totally copied Su and Paola with the colour scheme of the design, using Crescent Colours Toasted Marshmallow and a brown DMC on a piece of 36ct Cocoa linen from Silkweaver. The back fabric is white with a pale pink pattern, which matches the thread really well.

Oh and in case anyone’s wondering, I left the B (the designer’s initial) next to the brown bunny deliberately, rather than subbing my own initial, because I originally thought it stood for Bunny 🙂

I decided to finish up a piece that I stitched a couple of weeks ago, Quaker Four Corners Sampler by The Goode Huswife. I made it into a mattress-style pincushion, the first time I’d finished anything in quite this manner. I used Vero M’s instructions, which are on the tutorial links page and they were very clear:

Thanks Anne for organising the FAL sessions 🙂 They’re a great motivator!
