Umbrella Blessings



Ooh, I'm on a roll! Two blocks in two days *grin*.
Thank you everyone for all of the kind comments you left yesterday on my Clothesline Blessing Block :) You're all so sweet!

Today it has been raining like crazy and it made me think about my umbrella and how blessed we are to have such a thing so that we can venture outdoors and explore nature even while the heavens are pouring down on us.

Bunny & Umbrella Blessing Block

I have been smitten with bunny rabbits ever since creating my white rabbit embroidery and mixed media piece for the Alice in Wonderland swap I participated in so I just had to make my little person a bunny *grin*. A pretty little girl bunny dressed in a ruffled sundress amongst the flowers.

This is exactly where I could have been found today.... stealing moments in the flower beds between rain squalls LOL.

Happy stitching,

I have been loving your blocks as you reveal them. You are inspiring me to try some things forming in my crafty little brain. I thought it couldn't get better than the garden patch but the laundry on the line was so sweet!

I had to go back and look at your Alice in Wonderland White Rabbit.

On all of your designs your cloth is SO SMOOTH . . . how do you keep it that way?

DO you use a hoop when you embroider or do youu just hold it in your hand?

I am becoming SO ENTHRALLED with the embroidered blessings . . . it has been so many years since I embroidered I think I am feeling a pull back to it. ~ :o} paula

Hi Paula :)
I do use a hoop when I embroider. I've got a large 16 inch one that I usually like to use for these sorts of projects and it really helps for keeping everything smooth.

Another thing I always watch carefully is how tight I'm pulling my stitches keeping them just barely tight so that I don't bunch the fabric. I have a terribly heavy hand and if I don't watch I have quite the mess *grin*.

It is so wonderful that you are enjoying your blessings blocks. I don't get to do a lot of embroidery but when I do I enjoy it immensely :) Have a lovely evening!

Rosina...yeah, living closer would be nice. :) Even my husband thinks your work is incredible. Seriously, it's blowing me away. And it's okay to have a few plain ones - make the others POP! xo

I love how you go outside the boxes! I should do that since I have so many more than 100. The bunny with an umbrella is soooo cute.
