Workbasket's Rabbit Rondel and other pieces

I am really enjoying working on this piece and have completed approximately three/fifths of the outer ring. The colors of the Caron Wildflowers Periwinkle complement the Silkweaver Starburst overdyed linen so well that the piece is a treat to the senses. I am, of course, comfirmed in my love of Caron fibers. The Wildflowers [an overdyed cotton floss] lays so smoothly and just feels so silky that I find myself lightly stroking the finished stitching. I have a Secret Sister to thank for this chart and the Caron floss to stitch it ... and, though I have withdrawn from the 123stitch Secret Sister Exchange, I shall remember my 2008 participation with great fondness.
At lunchtime today, I did a bit more work on the Poisson du Avril biscornu ... yes, yes, I know I stated in my last post that I would be stitching on the Holly and Hearts Sampler during lunch hours ... but I am just going with the flow while I recover my stitching mojo ... I had both pieces in my stitching bag ... and the biscornu just called to me ... probably because I am much closer to finishing it.
In any case, I should be ready to take some photos in a day or two ... this blog could certainly use a few visuals ... it has been over a month and a half since I have posted photos of new work.

Glad to hear that your stitching mojo is on the mend. Sounds like you're making great progress. Will look forward to the pics.

Love to see you are stitching on what you want to stitch on. I too love Wildflowers. I just did two ornaments with them and then switched to DMC for another project and it just doesn't seem right.
Wished my biscornu would call my name and I could start stitching on it again.
