A Sunday Stroll ....... Hare Pyns (71)

Hare Pyns is a class project from Sherri Jones of Patrick's Woods. I had gotten the piece back in the early 2000's when I was a member of the Kindred Spirits Guild, and started the bunny face. Well, it never saw the light of day again until 2013 when Sherri taught this at Salty Yarns. I was able to "audit" the class for finishing and managed to get it mostly put together there and then completed at home.

Yesterday we managed to get to Hobby Lobby and pick out fabric for my granddaughter's dress. She zoned right in on "Paris" themed fabric (of which there was quite a selection) and picked a bright pink color. Here is a the mini version for her AG doll. 

She wasn't feeling well, been fighting a stomach bug, so we put off working on her dress until she feels better. It's been awhile since I've done any clothing sewing with a commercial pattern. I was surprised that the techniques are pretty much the same as they've always been....bias tape to finish off the neck edge, a button and loop closure at the neck, etc.. Perhaps it's because the pattern calls for a cotton fabric, not a knit.

I started a new project last night, just wanted something quick and easy. It's by Shepherd's Bush, Fear Not Needle Roll, #5 in their Shepherd's Fold series.

 My plans for today have changed. I'm going to Woodlawn tomorrow with a friend and am planning on a finishing day today. I really need one; I am way behind!!!

Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!



  1. Stasi, Francine and I will be at Woodlawn tomorrow (Monday), too!

  2. Dear Stasi
    Your finishing is beautiful.
    A gorgeous set to display and cherish.
    I hope Cora gets better soon.
    Have a lovely time at Woodlawn

  4. Hare Pyns looks great, Stasi. Sorry to hear your granddaughter is fighting a bug; her doll's dress is adorable. Have a safe trip tomorrow; hope you are back home before the snow falls!
