Numbers 552 and 702 with a bunneh

Here is my latest update on the Easter Chocolate Box. I am not sure if I want to continue stitching the white, but I may as well, since I cannot seem to find another suitable color for the trellis. (Although a pale yellow may show up better.)


Design: Easter Chocolate Boxes

Designer: Erica Michaels

Fabric: 28 count hand painted by MrsDeb from the SMO boards. I like to call it 'Spring'.

Fibers: Anchor 382 for the Bunneh, Kreinik Blending Filament 092 and #4 Very Fine Braid #3214, DMC B5200, 605, 954 and 910.

Began: Monday, March 2, 2009.








I haven't stitched much the last 2 days as I seem to be getting sick. I think it's seasonal allergies, but /shrug. Who knows?



In other news, Martin Brodeur received his 552 career win Tuesday night and Patrick Elias scored his 702nd goal. Grats to both men on a job well done!
