Ella's Brown Bunny Name Sampler

Thank you to many of my dear stitching friends for your thoughtful well wishes and prayers.  It is very comforting to know that others are so kind and caring, and I appreciate your words more than you can know.

Recently I completed a special sampler for our new little granddaughter, called "Ella's Brown Bunny Name Sampler".  Why brown bunnies?  Well, our daughter, Carra loves bunnies and decided to decorate Ella's nursery in shades of antique pink, and wanted to incorporate a theme with little "brown bunnies"  She chose curtain fabric with pink and brown bunny "toile" etchings.  A close friend created a beautiful appliqued, "brown bunny" quilt, using some of  the "toile" curtain fabric.  (I will have to take a picture of it to post.)

So of course, Grandma Kathy just had to create something special for Ella's nursery to go with the "Brown Bunny" theme too.  Using an adorable alphabet bunnies booklet of designs,  making color adaptations and a few of my own little creative additions, I created "Ella's Brown Bunny Name Sampler".

These photos don't do justice to the true colors of this piece, because the actual colors are rose and shades of medium and light pink, although some of the photos make the colors look like more peachy tones.

Well, although I need to sharpen my photography skills, at least you can see each "Bunny Letter" a little more closely. 

The little pink rosebud vines and baby bunny holding a cabbage are my attempt at being creative.


  1. Kathy, Love this keepsake you made for precious Ella. She will cherish it forever. You stitching is beautiful as always.

  2. Ella's sampler is just beautiful.

  3. What a sweet gift from Grandma Kathy! I still have a hooked rug that my grandmother made for me when I was about 8. It is so precious as I got to select the colors. It is so wonderful to have these treasures to hand down in the family.
