Beatrix Potter meets Picasso ............

The other day, I received a fabulous shipment of 100% Merino felt from Felt on the Fly.


I went to bed with visions of sugar plums, dancing through my head! 

No -- really.

I could not get those luscious colors out of my brain! 

Most of the wool felt I have been using is 75% wool.  This is truly the good stuff!

Some of the designs for the needle cases and pincushions have come from my collection of antique cookie cutters.  Chickens, cats, tea pots, trees, pigs, cows................ even a turkey!  And bunnies .... I have a couple of bunnies.

So Peter Rabbit came instantly to mind!

So yesterday ........

I traced.

I cut.

I cut some more.

I stitched.

I embroidered.

I beaded.

And this is what I have so far .....................




I kept thinking ......... another stitch .......... a few more beads ............... the bunny will appear!

I'm not ripping it out!

But it may take a very LARGE glass of wine to make that look like a bunny!

I think it is really cute. It looks like a sheep/bunny and that can be a good thing! :O)
