Three Quarters Finished...

Brynwood Needleworks - K. Schmitz' "Peter Cottontail"
Yesterday was Nifty 50s, so I decided to get back to my handwork. I took my kit and supplies for Kathy Schmitz' kit, Peter Cottontail from the "Sweet Stitches" set I've been working on and got busy.

I traced out the design, attached the background fabric to my scroll rods and got right to stitching (while I gabbed with the ladies, of course!).

I made quite a bit of progress before I left Harbour Heights. I took this photo when I set it aside for the rest of the afternoon, and then Handsome and I met an old friend for dinner.

As soon as we got home, I put on my jammies, grabbed a bottle of water and (Tag and) I retired to our favorite spot so I could continue stitching.

If you look at the pattern in the first photo, you can see that all I have left to complete Peter Cottontail are his pant legs and feet (paws?). I'll do those over my morning coffee today and he'll be ready to set aside until I finish the final three designs.

The rest of the day will be spent making another (#41) The Wanderer Travelers Clutch, as I was blessed to sell the first one I showed you in yesterday's post. I'm so thankful for my wonderful clients. 

I wish you have a great day today. I pray everyday that all my friends, near and far, can be as happy and content as I am.

Peter Cottontail is looking very dapper in your perfect stitches. I have those tiny scissors also and they are super sharp. However, what is the thread "leash" and what is it doing? Curious minds need to know. Enjoy your day and know that I am very happy to have your prayers for happiness and contentment that at times seems so illusive. Bless You Dear...
