My Camping Stitching

"It's not the hours you put in your work that counts,
it's the work you put in the hours."
Sam Ewing

I have returned home from a fun and very cold camping trip. We got home just in time for a big rain storm. With the cold weather I stayed in the trailer more and did lots of stitching.


This is Prairie Grove Peddler, Little Candle Mats - Bunnies. The pattern called for 2 bunnies to be blue,1 pink and 1 lavender. That just seemed off to me so I made one yellow. This is course made me change around the flower colors.


I now have to mount it on fabric. It called for a purple wool, but I am using a pick felt.




This is the pink fabric I won in a give away. It is a Doodles project that I want to make into a pillow. I have seen some cute pillows on other blogs so I will attempt one. This is a small scrap of material I already have, but will force myself to the fabric store to see what else is out there.

Check back towards the end of the week I am hosting my first give away.

Always keep love in your stitches,
Teresa

The bunny mat is adorable, Teresa. I'm a "color changer" too!

I've been wanting to make one of them candle mats. They are so cute! And I love your other little stitchy! I think it will look cute with that pink fabric!

Glad you had fun on your camping trip. Sorry that it was cold but it allowed you lots of stitchy time!
