After visiting John Johannsen's studio, I was itching to stitch one of his canvases. You should be proud of me. Instead of starting a new canvas, I went through my WIP pile and found this little bunny.
Terry Christopher, owner of 2 the Point, created the stitch guide. I love Terry's guides. Everything is well explained and charted, so you don't have to reference any other books. I had started stitching this canvas last year, and then stopped because I didn't like how my ribbon flowers were turning out. This was the first time I had ever used ribbon, and had underestimated how difficult it can be to work with. So now it's time to practice stitching up some flowers on the margin.
This is a photo of the stitch guide. Terry's bunny is adorable!
Terry stitched the flower on the left. Mine is the one on the right. See what I mean about needing to practice.
Same thing here. Terry stitched the rose on the left and I did the rest. I like one of them, but the two all the way on the right have got to go.
I do love the way the fur and collar turned out.
Now it's time to finish this WIP!
