Carrots are good for you!

Curious?
Any idea as to what's inside?
Hmm, what could it be?



Okay, okay - I won't make you wait any longer . . .


"A Bunny Garden Needleroll" by Praiseworthy Stitches
DMC floss, 28 ct raw linen



A needleroll, a pincushion, and a scissor fob all small enough to fit into their carrot 'house'. TOO CUTE! Everything to complete the project was included - linen, fabric, floss, beads, felt, thread rings, charm, ribbon, even a flower-head pin! I love it when I don't have to go searching for all the separate items that go into a project like this. And then there are other times when I like being creative and adventurous and experimental and start putting things together and am amazingly surprised (or utterly shocked) as to what evolves! Oops, I'm getting sidetracked.


Here's a photo of the needleroll unrolled showing bunnies-large and small-in their vegetable garden filled with rows of lettuce and cauliflower and carrots. Do you see the little worms? There's a tiny one among the flowers and one crawling his way among the veggies.




Here's a closeup of the lower portion of the needleroll . . .





See the busy bees buzzing around the hive?


Here's what the 'working' side of the needleroll looks like:


This was such a delight to stitch. Thank you for letting me share it with you.

  1. That is adorable! Good work.

    I love stitching accessories...I must have a dozen charts (not yet stitched, of course) of chatelaines.
