Punch Needle Bunny

Thank you to Betty for this cute pattern. I decided to punch needle the design, but left off the date - I have a hard time with dates and letters, I guess I need more practice. I did use all DMC floss for this design, but mixed a couple of different tans for the bunny to give him a more realistic look.

Live and learn, but next time I would use a lighter blue for the sky, it's pretty dark in "real" life. The photo makes it look lighter than it is. When done with the punching and tea staining, I stitched a homespun to the back and made it into a pillow. I did find the perfect home for the pillow, this little shelf is in the downstairs half bath.

I'm looking forward to the next week, we have spring break here, I have lots of projects in line to complete. ~Ann
