Easter Rabbit Hand Embroidery Pattern

Image
Thinking of Easter I painted some white rabbits and chickadees this week for greeting cards and a different type of embroidery pattern than what I've done before.   

I made the initial drawing into a pattern and it will work as a coloring page too.  There seems to be coloring pages all over now.  Coloring books for adults.  I love them.  Great for relaxation and a meditative experience.   More information on the  White Rabbit Embroidery pattern here. 

Winter Botanicals Hand Embroidery Pattern

Image
I took a bit of a break from designing embroidery over the holidays.  I hope your holidays were good.  I've been inspired by winter plants and natural linen tea towels.  A light box is definitely nice for transferring the pattern to natural linen tea towels since the fabric is a little thicker than the white linen.  It's a fun pattern with lots of lazy daisies (one of my favorite stitches) and the white oatmeal colored floss from The Gentle Art looks great on the linen.
