A MUCH TRAVELLED BUNNY


If he could claim air points this little Bunny will have done well.l as far as I have been able to trace he started his travels in America then popped over to England returning to America he moved around that country at least three times, then Annette of California Stitcher sent him to visit Bea in Canada, from there he came away down south to New Zealand. He is going to do a couple of more visits in New Zealand and will be ready to fly off again at the end of the month. If you would like to receive this travelling pattern leave a message on this posting.
 He comes with a selection of threads and bits he has collected on the way, I have however stitched him with silks from my odds and ends box. and plan to mount him as a fob on this green material.

 
 
Now some good news-
Pay it forward.
Pay It Forward (PIF)~ verb: "1. to repay the good deeds one has received by doing good things for other unrelated people
March 29th 2011 I announced who was to receive my PIF Challenge. The rules were that I had 365 days in which to fulfill my part of the challenge and will do my best to stitch pieces that are quite special and sent to 3 further people.. Then if you are chosen as one of my PIF recipients, once you have received something from me then you must offer the same on your blog to keep the kindness going.
Those following my blog will know that within a few months of that posting life here was turned upside down firstly with the flooded room that took some months to restore to normal and then by my husbands illness, unfortunately I have failed to meet the commitment of 365 days  but I  am pleased to say i finally posted out to two PIF's last friday so Mouse from Tales of a Stitching Mouse blog (U.K.) and Evelyne from EEF's needle blog ( France) watch your mail boxes.  hopefully these will arrive next week.
 
Lilian Pilar from Spain if you are reading this i would still like to send something to you but you have not answered my email asking for a postal address ..I will catch up with Diane from Didi's beaded goodies ( NZ) as she lives here in Stratford.
 Yes thats 4 not 3 but as I only had 4 replies how could you pick only 3.
 
Last weekend was IHSW and although I did not register this time i did manage to get a small piece stitched and mounted.. will share that at a later date as it is a birthday gift.

Good afternoon Lee, what a lovely bunny!!!! I'd enjoy stitching the bunny - when it returns to the USA ; )

I'd stitch, put on the blog, and let other needleworkers have the opportunity (after me)

Thx
