Put On Your Easter Bonnet

Happy chilly Friday! We have lots of Easter treats in the shop--the non-chocolate kind.

Our newest shop model is "Uber Egg," by Bent Creek. Sharon stitched this, and we framed it here. It's quite large!

Glendon Place's "Eggs ala Round." This is a very colorful design that uses lots of different colors of floss, including sparkly fibers.

Homespun Elegance's "Sampler Bunny."

More rabbits and more eggs from The Prairie Schooler: "Folk Eggs."

Speaking of rabbits, how about knitting something from Debbie Bliss' Sublime yarn--80% merino and 20% angora. (Angora rabbits are not harmed; their fur is combed or clipped and then spun.)

How about a bunny thread drop?

Sisters and Best Friends' "Over the Moon Spring Bunny."

Lizze Kate's "Peep."

Shepherd's Bush's "Spring."

Sam Sarah's "Harried Hare." Stitch the picture--or the carrots and put them in someone's Easter basket.

Peter Rabbit's gone too far and Mr. McGregor is running him out of the garden in Prairie Moon's "Surrender Peter."

A great "Garden Egg" from Alessandra Adelaide:

You can put all of your eggs in one basket with this handy mesh carry-all.

Ellen is in Dallas at the Needlepoint show; check back to see what she brings home!

Please give us a call at 703-360-4600 if you have questions or would like to order from us. Our shop hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Saturday (EST), and 12:30-4:30 on the first Sunday of the month.

Happy Stitching!
