Another dose of sugar
I love stumpwork, I love wool embroidery and I especially love Jan Kerton's wool embroidery and stumpwork. And........ it is well known, how much I love Turkey Work! Look at that bunny tail!
This is an Australian wool blanket I made for my #2 daughter. It was offered as a class at SAGA convention a few years ago. I modified Jan's original design a tad to reflect my daughter's sorority, Zeta Tau Alpha. I made the flowers into white violets, and added the 5 point crown over one of the bunnies. ZTA's sorority symbols are bunnies, strawberries, white violets and the 5 point crown.When I saw Jan's original design, I immediately thought of my daughter and her sorority. It was so much fun to stitch. But if it was fun to stitch, imagine.....
how much fun it is now! What a cute future little ZTA. Two days old and she is ready to pledge.
