Chocolate Rabbits

Well I don't know about chocolate rabbits for easter but I certainly had a frog in the house.  As I rushed to finish the second release of the pattern for Sweet Flowers I was inundated by the critters and I can tell you if they had of been chocolate I would have eaten them.

So on the very late evening of the 9th of April I managed to put the last back stitch into the blessed piece. I had to have it finished for the new part release on the 10th.

Do I like the design?  Well yes I do and it is certainly a lovely stitch.  I don't think it will fit into my house though and hopefully when it is done someone will be desperate to own it.

So why I am spending the best part of a year stitching on it?  Dunno....  I think it is a motivator.  I want to stitch but feel so exhausted all the time.  This design has enough colour change not to be boring and I like stitching pretty things.  It is also just plain cross stitch.  It is enough.

So here is the picture I sent to the lovely designer Angie.  She does some gorgeous designs.


  1. Very pretty Janine. Not enough blue there to suit your place eh?

    1. I have actually changed the colours Cathy. I am not keen on blue Roses which is why I didn't choose blue. May regret it but this is the colourway I chose. Have stitched almost a quarter of it now so this is how it will stay.

  2. I think it's a beautiful piece and love your colour choices.

  3. Hi

    Just found your blog.

    I love Sweet Flowers and your version looks lovely!

  4. Thank you Jo and Milly. Have started on the third lot of pattern and as it is progressing I am pleased with my colour choice as well. It is a pretty design which is why I have chosen to stitch it.
    Not sure it will go in my home though.

  5. I dunno about chocolate rabbits, but rabbits leaving chocolates? All over the house? I know a bit about that :(

  6. I just became your follower. There is no other post after April; but I just found your blog and I think with such wonderful works it deserves to follow!

    Greetings from far far away...

  7. Thank you for your lovely comments Nurdan. I shall make a new post this weekend with some stitchy pictures.
