Counted Cross Stitch Revival

Well it's a VERY frosty February day here in Jim Thorpe, Pa !!!  The steam train is in town for the President's Day holiday and it's making quite the spectacular scene !!! Looks like something out of The Polar Express doesn't it !!!  I'm FREEZING just looking at the picture ( and I was REALLY FREEZING taking the picture !!) .   So, to warm up, lets talk bunnies and spring time ...... and the counted cross stitch revival that has been going on the past  few months/year or so.

I LOVED counted cross stitch the first time it was popular ..... back in the 1980's and 1990's .  In fact, I was a cross stitcher way before I was a quilter .  I did a wedding sampler for myself , and then birth samplers for both of my boys ...... 

I just love sailor suits on little boys !  So I couldn't resist this bunny wearing one too.

And Beatrix Potter bunnies !!! How can you resist Peter Rabbit, Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail ???

Now doesn't that just look like Spring !!!!

So, I'm really happy to see counted  cross stitch picking up steam again ..... I have TONS of great patterns and half started projects ( big surprise) ..... I'm gonna have to dig them out and dust them off and get stitching again !

Be back soon,
Mary Anne (aka Mare)
