Rabbits in the Round: Ombre Bunnies Color Conversion

 

I've had this color conversion in my head since I first saw Rabbits in the Round last spring and I finally got it done! I stitched my version on 28 ct. green linen (I think it's called Rosemary, but I don't think it's available anymore), which made it quite a bit larger than the petite, over-one model. Here are my other changes:

Bunnies (light to dark): Cosmo 713, 714 715, 716; vines: CC Weeping Willow; flowers: GAST Buttercrunch; berries: CC Smoke





If you like color conversions, click on the tab at the top of the page (or on the label below this post) to see all of mine. They're one of my favorite things about stitching.

I am behind on projects I wanted to stitch, behind on blog reading, behind on finishing... just generally behind on anything stitching-related. But I'm trying not to put pressure on myself about any of that, because stitching and all its associated pursuits should be a respite and not a source of worry. Right? Right.

So I'm off to prep a couple of new projects. Hope you're all well and contentedly stitching away. Thanks for the well-wishes for my first shot. I'm happy to report no side effects. Second shot is in two weeks.

Happy Stitching, y'all.

  8. This is so pretty, I really like what you have done with the design. I have a done a few JBW designs in the past all in one variegated colour but do think this looks better your way. x

  9. Love your changes. So very pretty. I have a ton of JBW designs but never seem to stitch them. You might make me go digging through my patterns for some now.

  10. This is a sweet piece, I love your color conversion. Stitching (and everything associated with this great hobby) should absolutely not be a source of worry or stress, just contentment and relaxation. (I know I can sometimes let myself get stressed about stitching, which is silly, so I am working on letting that go!) Hope you have a very relaxing enjoyable week with a lot of stitching!
