I smocked this over the past two weeks -- starting back to work is interfering with my sewing addiction!

Cute bunnies, one turned backwards...bullion eggs in the baskets and french knot daffodills beside the bunnies.

This is a Mary De style dress for a friend's 3 year old granddaughter -- she is going to be adorable!

The Smocking plate is one by LBJ Designs called Bishop Bunnies.

Not for beginners, there isn't really a graph on there for the smocking -- not hard if you're an experienced smocker though
