Fabric Tuesday linky party!

 I have been an embroidery fool lately! I have often tried to think of the perfect craft that transports well that doesn't require too much brain power, I have found it! EMBROIDERY.  For a while I thought it was knitting, but you have to follow a pattern most of the time, and count, and that is too much when you are trying to watch a movie etc.  

Embroidery needs nothing! Just the initial set up, then pick out all the colors you may need, and you are good to go! I just put it in a ziplock (one day I will make a cute embroidery bag...hint hint Meg, good homemade Christmas gift)

Here is my fabric Tuesday project...
Here is a little woodland friends I am working on, almost done... Isn't the bunny sweet?

And I use my favorite new Havel's Sewing scissors Meg and I got from Market, I LOVE these scissors! Not only are they razor sharp, these ones have the curved tip for super close thread trimming.  And they are pink! I love them!

And now for the winner of the Canton Village Quilt Works giveaway...

I love the Basics section of Canton Village. One can find geometrics like aboriginal dots, black and whites, or Kona solids easily with this link.

Your embroidery work is beautiful! Love the little tree stump and bunny. I haven't done embroidery in years and I wasn't very good. Neat scissors!

Oooooh, I love your new pink scissors!!! Pink is such a happy color, and combine that with great scissors...oh, my! vbg
Your embroidery is winsome, and the bunny is a darling, dapper fellow. I need to start a project like this - to have on the go. Thanks for the push.
Thank you, too, for such a lovely blog, I'm a fairly new follower, and am swooning over all the talent!
