Main alphabet in a mystery green silk from my thread-box, border and hearts in "yawning mountain" silk by hdf. Bunny in "betty bluebell" hand-dye cotton by Cresent Colors. It's my first thing in silk (except for the bunny) and it seems a lot softer but I don't seem to get that orgasmic thrill that I heard so much from the converted.
Pattern is "free-bee alphabet with hare" [sic] by La-D-Da.
The stitching experience was pretty fun and filled me with glee. By far the best cross-stitch alphabet I have ever encountered (and I have a thing for samplers) and it would be my number one choice if I ever needed to stitch something for somebody special. It's all very thought out and not slavishly symmetrical, which gives it heaps of character.

I told you it was nice
I have a metric shed-load of semi-recent stitchery that hasn't been scanned for general consumption, so there might just be more of these posts forthcoming. I could also do with fishing out the camera for the completion of the traumatic biscornu - which I love beyond reason.
