Crewel work Durer Hare - finished at last!

I have finally finished this. I used yarns I had received from the thread club and purchased from Dragonfly Lotus Designs Handspun Thread.
The fabric is linen twill. I used simple stab stitch for the entire hare.

February 2014

This will be a tiny sweater for a Tilda doll. It's my first try at double pointed needles. (DPNS) So far, so good. I'm looking forward to making mittens soon.

Tilda polar bears - I had to rush through these, they should have been better. :)

finishing February

So far so good. I am finishing things I'd started and set aside. It's not usual for me to set things aside as I've done recently.

This is a natural 51/49 linen/cotton blend dyed with indigo. The pattern is my own.

This is a pattern from hardcorestitchcorps
I absolutely love this.
I used DMC linen embroidery floss. It was not a good idea. The floss frayed, broke and made a mess no matter now short a piece I used. I won't do that again!
