Vintage Hare samplers ... New designs up and coming

"Then you should say what you mean,' the March Hare went on. `I do,' Alice hastily replied; `at least - at least I mean what I say - that's the same thing, you know.'”

Alice in Wonderland .... Lewis Carroll

My new designs are coming thick and fast and it now just about gathering materials and threads that I think will be right and in keeping.  I am sure I have most of what I need, if not all in my treasure trove (work room stash!!)

I have done a design with hares before called 'button moon gazing' but this design is new and more whimsical.  The hare in question will have a tweed jacket on and a pocket watch!

Hares are a personal favourite of mine and when you have a picture of one in your home it is suppose to bring happiness and tranquillity.  I have a hare that is on a tile which I have shown you on here before plus a sampler that I cross stitched.....

I would like one of these for our home as well.

The only problem now is do I stitch the Hare or the Mermaid first!!.... I need eight pairs of arms and hands, but getting clothes might be a problem!!!

Next week I will be starting in earnest and I will be letting you know how I am getting on and what I will be stitching.  Plus I will be letting you know of Vintage Christmas fairs that are up and coming as well as the stitch of the week.

Until then have a wonderful day and Happy Stitching!
