Well, as hoped, I finished Rabbits! before I left for London - about half an hour before!
It has proved to be a really enjoyable exercise and a good pathway back into crewel work.
The instructions continued very clear and the quality of fabric and thread added considerably to the ease of working.
There was a good variety of stitches too - and I really love the colours.
I did not have time to block or do more that take the piece from the hoop - and snap a couple of photos for the road.
It is designed as a small cushion, but might work well on a box lid.
I shall think on it while away.
