Sleeping Bunnies Birth Sampler by Janlynn
I stitched this design on two occasions. This is the only time that I have ever stitched a design more than once. I typically don’t like to repeat a project, but I thought this design was too cute. I couldn’t resist.
I originally stitched this design for my ex-boss around 1996 or 1997. He had just had his first child. A boy. The baby’s name was Jack. Unfortunately, back then, I really wasn’t taking photos of my projects, so I have nothing to show for it. I seriously regret that now.
I later re-stitched this design for my current co-worker’s first child, Emma. I stitched a project for his second child, Marcus. You can check it out here. You will see that the second time around on this sampler, I didn’t bother stitching all the butterflies. I left most of them out. I still think it turned out OK. Today, I would consider this project an easy (beginner) stitch. What do you think?
