Antler-ed Bunny (and a bit about Embroidery Needles too)
What a wonderful fresh and cute design Katie has made. I especially love the abundance of running stitches and the different coloured French Knots on top of Bunny's Antlers!
Many thanks for all your kind comments in the Feeling Stitch Poll (see post below). It's a lot to take in for us but we hear you! There is still time to comment by the way.
Also, a couple of readers mentioned they were wondering about Embroidery Needles. For my own embroideries I generally prefer a needle that is quite sharp, not too large but with a big enough eye so you can thread it easily. A needle that is too blunt or big will leave holes in you fabric. An eye that is too small for the number of strands you use will damage your floss. Buy a pack with various sizes embroidery needles and try and see what works best for you. However... I saw this Needle Magnet (with Needles) on Sublime Stitching the other day and these look exactly like my kind of needle! If you want to know more about needles, there's was a wonderful guest post written about Embroidery Needles a couple of years ago, you can find it here on our blog.
