Tiny finishes and some more fabrics

Dyed some more fabrics the other day. Decided to use aida this time, and I like how it turned out. Used two different colors and one is an overdyed. Here's a pic of my work:


On the left the color is heavy cream, on the right Kahlua Cream overdyed.

The SMO board was down for a few days this week, and boy, did I sure miss it! When it finally came back up, Sandy posted the second part of the Four Seasons Fatties SAL. I stitched it up last night and here are the results. The Hubmeister wanted the Bunneh in brown and to me, that means a chocolate color in the Spring time :P.


It could have just been me, but on the original chart, there were not any gaps between the sections, IE, between the bottom of the Spring section and the top of the Autumn one, however, when I stitched up the Bunneh, I noticed there was a single row between the two. I don't really mind, as I *LOVE* the way this turned out, but I kept thinking I was missing something. (Not unusual for me! :P)

Nice job on the fabric dyeing. Love how your SMO is coming along. The rabbit looks so chocolate. Hmmm....I think I need a chocolate fix right now. ;D
