NEW FINISH !

 This is my latest finish!  The lighting is not that good.. I took it last night in the sunroom. It is in the mail headed to a good friend of mine. It is from designer, Brenda at With Thy Needle and Thread/ Country Stitch. It is from her 3 design leaflet called Bunny Tails. I cross stitched the pillow one night watching a tv show.. really fast stitch. The tail on the bunny was to have wool. I didn't have any, so... I used some angora yarn I had in my stash.
I tried to get a better picture in the light this morning.. but it was so hot and humid, my camera lens fogged up. I did get to use the new sewing machine. It is great!  I am now stitching on Primitive Needle - Hornbook Angel. I am using the called for threads and Days Gone By 40 count linen.  Buying a new sewing machine made me have to go through my drawers and straighten up all my ribbons, trims, and sewing misc.. Why is that?  I now have found all my trims I had lost.. In the back of a drawer full of loose ribbons.  Now I have to roll on cards to sort... Funny how getting one small thing leads to a big clean out and sort job.. Well, back to those drawers....
