Here’s Benjamin – Bustle and Sew’s very own Easter Bunny! Benjamin is handknitted (by me!) from Rowan yarns and is looking for a kind new home with lots of chocolate this Easter. He’s the prize in my Easter draw – the form to enter is at the top of the blog. If you have time it would be great if you could tell me what you like best about Bustle and Sew – but you don’t have to!
As a bonus, everyone who enters the draw will receive a pdf of the embroidery transfers for vintage ballerinas together with instructions for working. Clearly these young ladies have not been eating too much chocolate at Easter! I think they’re just so pretty and can see them on a whole range of items …
I’ve also been working hard on my latest embroidery design. Once again I’ve been inspired by the Alice in Wonderland story and have come up with the dormouse fast asleep under a rather large toadstool –
… possibly even the very same toadstool that the caterpillar with the hookah was lounging upon!
I’m really pleased with how my dormouse has turned out – he looks so sleepy and cuddly. The pattern is on offer in my Etsy shop as a downloadable if you want to try him for yourself – and I think he’d look just as nice in outline stitch if you’re a bit pushed for time.
And finally I just want to say thanks so much everyone who has taken the time to leave comments on my last few posts – I don’t always have time to reply to them all, but I love reading them ……
Good luck in the draw – remember Benjamin is looking for a kind new home.
