Today is/was Monday

Today I added a scarf to the Polka dot rabbit . and yesterday I made ANOTHER bigger cat doll [ can't part with the first one ]
and then today I made a rabbit doll .
The cat and rabbit doll each have a spring flower . I painted the daisy and the tulip on .
and then ..... I remembered this little square pillow that I made many years ago . [ early 90's ] . It wasn't under the bed , it was in some drawer .
I like it because I made the little green wool pillow and I embroidered the little flowers on . I painted the running rabbit on muslin and attached it to the pillow with ..... uhm ....
is that called the buttonhole stitch ?
I forget . and I sure don't remember how to do that stitch now . I'll have to drag out the old directions and practice again .

Sandy you just bedazzle me!!! These are all amazing even though the tuxedo cat is my favorite. I'm a bit bias though since I have a tuxedo cat. :)

Hugs,

I would love to come to your house someday and plunder. You know, go through drawers and boxes looking for treasures. What fun that would be. I think we used to call that particular stitch, a blanket stitch. I love the rabbit's scarf. Too, too cute.
