Bittersweet Bunny & Friends

I've been a busy gal lately trying to get this group completed in time to have a fall sale...at my slow as molasses speed of working...fall will be over and winter will be upon us before I get everything finished. 
Also in the works are some Halloween characters and more autumn themed pieces which I hope to complete soon. In the meantime you can preview these pieces..."Bittersweet Bunny Pincushion & Needle-Book", "Little Grey Mouse with Button's" and lastly my "Black Rose Bunny Pin-Keep."
This primitive style needle-book is a companion piece to my Bittersweet bunny...it has a cross stitched B & B monogram, a wool patch and an old pearl button.
Inside is a cream colored wool insert with pearl buttons, a couple of tapestry needles for your stitching needs and a sweet little reproduction antique needle-card tucked into the pocket.
I have lined the inside with French General fabric.
Blanket stitching all around the edge.
A sweet wool felt bunny sits on his pincushion...Bittersweet branches, flowers, berry's and leaves are cross stitched all around...An antique cross stitch pattern I have modified to suit my needs...Valdani variegated three strand floss.

A Wee gray mouse perched on his wooden spool...
A wand full of buttons...in case you should need one for your sewing needs.
This Bunny is standing on his tuffet which has a cross stitched wreath of black roses...again an antique pattern which I have modified...Valdani variegated three strand floss.

My blog sale will take place in October with a firm date to be announced soon...meanwhile it is back to my worktable to get more pieces completed...

Happy Fall ya all!!!
