Rabbits! Finish

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.

It has me highly motivated for more crewel work - the intension of the gift!

Aren't those bunnies darling? I love that last photo. It does look like a beautiful kit, and you have done a great job with it. Nice finish!

Beautiful! I love it. Have never tried crewel work but can see it would be extremely enjoyable to stitch
