Progress and an Ugly Bunny

I needed a model of something stitched in long armed cross-stitch for a class I’m teaching.  Okay, maybe I didn’t *need* it but it felt wrong to teach a class and not provide an example.  So, here’s the example:

Of course I see all it’s flaws…and it doesn’t lack for them that’s for sure.  I’m kind of proud of the ‘Donnie Darko’ looking bunny though.  It’s a pattern from this book and it’s not too bad.  Sure, it’s off center and kind to chubby, but I think it will do the trick.

Tomorrow I plan on making a short hand out and getting the kits together.  And some sewing.  My child is in desperate need of a chemise.  She really needs to stop growing.
