Moon Gazing Hare ,and lots of lovelies.

The Hare is finished !
I put the last stitches in late Saturday night , and I love it . I'm surprised how much I like it actually , I think it will be hard to let it go . Got to get it priced for framing , then decide whether to frame or make it into a wall hanging .
If I do let it go , I might just have to make another one for myself at some point , lol.

I'm all set to make a new start , with a deadline . I'm doing a "different" wedding sampler , and it needs to be stitched and framed for early October. so , there will be lots of progress pictures to come .

I was very lucky to win a prize in Michelles' blogoversary giveaway . My prize came last week ,and what a prize it is . Look at the lovely goodies Michelle sent me .

Buttons , beads and charms .Beautiful hand dyed linen , DMC threads , and local (to Michelle) made thread . I have a couple of projects I could use the fabric for ,best get checking on measurements and see which will fit best.Ribbon and lace ,
And a gorgeous hand made fob , and a lovely biscornu , which I get to show twice , so you can see both sides.

The choccy bar is still around, but Michelle also sent some sweets for my kids , which soon disappeared .

Michelle, hope you got my e-mail , but Thank you so much again , I love it all .

All the gifts were wrapped up really nicely , but I was in such a hurry to open them , I forgot to take "before " pictures . I think I need some more practice ,so any offers of help would be gratefully received , lol.

My own blogoversary is approaching , so I will be having a giveaway soon, keep 'em peeled.

Thanks for dropping by,

Cath

I love your new finish - I have a grandbunny of my own, so have a "thing" for rabbit stitches, haha. Can't wait to see what you do with it! Thanks for sharing.
