The Rabbit - Bent Creek

This was a joy to stitch - even the swirls weren't as difficult as they looked! There is a mistake in the upper body of the rabbit, but unless you peer very closely at the chart and compare it to the finished piece, you can't tell!

The expression on the rabbit's face reminds me of my guinea pigs :o)

This was another eBay purchase, and the kit came complete with a mini pillow and buttons for finishing, so that's what I used, and I'm very pleased with the result:

The carrot buttons are so cute, and each one is different!
