When I got home though, I just didn't want to work on those covers. Instead, I turned to my sketchbooks. Now, I know I've probably mentioned it a few times, but I have stacks of sketchbooks full of animals and weird characters and beasts that I've been drawing for years and years. These sketchbooks have since sat on a shelf, doing nothing. For some reason, when I got home I was desperate to drag one of those sketches kicking and screaming into stitchy life, so I selected a couple of cute little rabbit characters, and the 'querulous rabbits' pattern was born!
|I'm not sure what they are querulous about though...|
I rushed this embroidery because I was just enjoying it so much, so the stitching isn't the greatest, but I absolutely loved filling in the features of these little bunnies! So much so that I deliberately left their facial expressions till last so they would only pop into being at the last minute. I feel my sketchbooks may have a new lease of life! The only question left is what to do with them now...a little cushion perhaps? Or a small hot water bottle cover? Choices, choices!
