Puff, Puff, Chug, Chug ....

I did it ... and just like the like the Little Engine "I though I could. I thought I could".
Lots of detail in this one ... A big thank you to my step mom Jennie who told me how to improve my satin stitch ... I hope I am getting better (although I'm still regularly embarrassed by how much I have to learn!)Measures 35.5" x 35.5". Puff, Puff, Chug, Chug on to the next project ... (erm when can I put my feet up?)

Oh, Rachael! That's beautiful! You did an amazing job! I love it!
As for your feet, I guess you will have to learn to sew with both feet so that you can put one of them up at a time.

Hi Rachael, this is just too amazing for words, so much detail! I loved the wee little cardigan too, your little bunny will look so cute in it :) Talking of bunnies, I just finished a print with a bunny in it, so inspired by the bunnies hopping around in my garden.
Hugs, Catherine x
