Whiskers for the Easter Bunny

Linda's finished stitching her Japanese Bunny. Look at those whiskers! Who knew one ply of floss would be perfect?

I'm sorry, I don't know the designer but Linda stitches great rabbits.  Here's another.

  1. These great designs are Melissa Prince Designs - and they might be Patricia Sone stitch guides

    They are splendid whiskers!

    I found four little pictures years ago in a cross-stitch magazine: four seasons, each with a cat of a different colour. Spring = grey tabby on a fence with yellow and purple flowers; summer = orange tabby among orange flowers being flown at by a bee; autumn = regal black cat on a huge orange pumpkin (not very South African but who cares?); winter = white longhair sitting in the snow, looking up at a bird in a bare tree (not SA either!). I did them for my daughter, who still rotates them according to the time of year. DMC wool on 10-count ... but I did all the whiskers in DMC stranded cotton so they looked really glossy and alert. I was really pleased at how they looked - I love whiskers.

  3. Never occurred to me that typical seasonal designs are so North American-centric! But I imagine your daughter loves them regardless. The cotton whiskers on the wools sounds like a fabulous contrast.
