Sunday Meeting by Ewe and Eye

I know I brought Helowise out for an extensive review yesterday.  HOWEVER, I reserve the right to stitch on what I feel like stitching on.  This pretty blue sky was calling my name yesterday.  The stitch is a bargello and so perfect for this slightly whimsical looking piece.  Thank you, Amy. 

I am stitching this canvas using a stitch guide by Amy Bunger from Amy's Golden Strand in Memphis, TN.

I went to Amy's in March of this year for Miss Helowise.  She has been put up for awhile.   I am bringing her our for the weekend.  Here is what has been done:

Bunnies I have known

The stitching around here is rather dull.  Did the other side of the roof.

More stitching on the belt

I thought I would post pictures of the bunnies I have shown on my blog all at once.
