Revised Honey Pot on Winnie the Pooh Vintage Cross Stitch Baby Quilt

I wanted to show some finished work on my Winnie the Pooh cross stitch quilt that is getting close to being finished.  My quilted Winnie the Pooh officially has his honey pot!  Below is the picture from the quilt kit.  For being a Disney design, I found it rather blah.  So... my stash of DMC threads was put into action... 




And here is the end result.  It is enough of a change to make the pot a little more dimensional and pleasant to the eye.  The older Disney quilts tend to not have a lot of color variations going on.  Little changes in the layout can add so much to the quilt's appearance and give it some individuality from the mass production.  I think that the flowers will get altered, since they are mapped out to all be of the same shade...  Just a few more flowers and Winnie the Pooh's body are left to finish up! :)


And just in case you were wondering... I ordered my Lorax fabric today!  Kaufman fabrics created two lines one of earth toned colors and another of brights to make quilts with.  The original book is in earth tones, so I ordered that line.  Maybe later, the bright colored Lorax fabrics will find there way to my house, too. ;)   But, there is the Cat in the Hat fabric line that is calling my name... plus the rest of the spotted Seuss fabric... Aaaagh!  What is a girl to do?  Then as I wandered around the Fat Quarter's shop, I ran into Eric Carle's "Hungry Caterpillar" fabric.  My son's favorite book as a child and another addition to my wish list! ;)  It was then that I decided to work on finishing some projects, before I found too many more to start! :)

Hello Lara... Chickens are always a challenge. We are constantly learning new things about them. They are definitely a fun and worth while experience. :)

The honey pot is really a nice creation, all other are also good. The creation shows that to make it a lot of experience needed.
