here is a princess with bunny i embroidered for my 5yo daughter. She has a thing with bunnies, so she picked this one screaming: I want it i want it , I want it!!

So I decided to embroider it to put on her room walls. My daughter has to go through counselling once a week. It's my quiet peaceful lonely time. The kind of time you can emboider in peace, one stich at a time, while chatting with other parents. I took the princess, and I embroidered it each time we went there. and here it is now, in all its glory, while my daughter is done with counselling .

I used stem stiches, back stiches, french knot stiches and so on... A lot of fun, and a lot of happy thoughts shared while doing it.



and here is a close up on her face, for which I had a lot of fun, mixing stiches Smiley



 I hope you like it as much as I do!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
