Kim took the origami bunny design to a whole new dimension when she added all satin stitching to the basic outlines. The weight of her satin stitches add such a nice depth and interest to her piece. Well done Kim!

Heidi hooked this mini 6″ x 6″ rug of adorableness. She used 1/4″ hand dyed wool strips, and completed the piece with a traditional quilter’s binding. I am seriously impressed at the skills Heidi used to create such an amazing mini masterpiece.

The Woodland Wonderland Fox is available and ready to be stitched onto your next project of cuteness!
