Somewhere out there....


Somewhere out there my 7th grade home-ec teacher is laughing at me. You see in 7th grade home-ec short-sighted me never imagined I would want or need to know how to sew eyelet trim onto a pillow. In 7th grade the only thing I remember caring about was 7th grade boys and when school would be over with and whether I liked my outfit that day. In 7th grade I laughed at girls who sewed their own clothes or did anything crafty. Now I wish I had paid attention when we were learning how to sew pillows. It probably would have saved me about 2 hours of frustration last night! So after multiple attempts to sew the trim on correctly I finally gave up and stuffed it all away in a bag, and cleaned up all the thread I had ripped out over and over from this little pillow.On a happier note I did find a cute little bunny button at Hobby Lobby, and am quite happy with the little bunny gazing wistfully up at my giant carrot.

And this is my 15th project of the challenge. I originally thought I would be organized and stitch in a very strict order days 1-15 and then start over at day 1. I have quickly realized that is not how it is going to go. I can't do organized, but I can do whims. So each morning I peruse my stitching basket of all 15 projects and pull out whichever one calls to me. I like this one, it is definately top 5. Of course I may be biased towards anything with bunnys. I re-dyed the fabric on this three times! I originally started with Chartreuse (pic on the right) which looked spring green on the cover of the dye box but turned out BRIGHT green on the actually fabric. So that piece got tucked away in my linen box, it might work for a later halloween project instead.

I so love the bunny looking at the big, beautiful carrot. I do my best work when it is at my leisure, too. Organized or tight schedules suck all the energy out of me. Keep posting on your project though as it look beautiful.

I love how the bunny is checking out that carrot !...dinner I think he's saying. Love your project 15 and who says they need doing in order, if that don't suit your style then go for it.

Oh someone else who love bunnies!
I love the bunny button. Too bad about the stitching! I don't remember doing the eyelet stitch but I did have to make a duffle bag with rounded edges that I still use. It's holding my big dragon project right now.
