New Project (I know, I know... Not again.)

So my mother has been trying to get me to take up cross stitching with her. Of course, my crafty will is not strong... so I caved. She and I sorted thru a number of her favorite designers and found a few that I like.

I decided on this one to try out first. It is fairly large at 26 x 15 inches and super cute. It is called "Sow Many Carrots" by the designers Sisters and Best Friends. When it is done it will have some cute bee buttons with the inscription of: "Sow many carrots, so little time." I wanted to make it to hang inthe bunny room. They looooovvvvveeeeee carrots.

Unfortunately, I was unable to find a picture of the pattern all stitched up. I will post one after I am done so the world can see how super cute it will be. Naturally, I will be changing up the pattern a little. I can't help but mettle. I will be using overdyed verigated colored floss instead of the traditional DMC it calls for. It will probably take me a while to finish as I already have so many other projects I am in the middle of but at least I am making my mom happy (while making something cute for the house!).
