Rabbit Egg Punch Needle!


I made another item that was gifted to me by a friend; Sharon of Moosecraft.
The design is by Goos Nest and called Antique Chalk Rabbit. The original had a black rabbit, but I went with DMC linen thread, color 4145. I really like how it comes out in animal pieces.

It was quilt the piece to punch, so took me longer, but well worth it. After I punched it, I used walnut ink to age it and finished it off with a light green rope twine.

A very nice rabbit. I thought your title said something about "Rabbit Punch" and wondered what that would taste like. LOL!
