Please pass the carrots~~~~

I thought these little darlings were the cutest things I had ever seen when SamSarah's "Harried Hare" was published this spring..... Thanks to my stash of overdyed oranges, I was able to stitch these babies up and today I finished my stitched finishes into these dainty little baby carrots...

 32 ct sage linen
specified overdyed threads

I did not do the edged stitching on the carrot tops, rather I sewed a green fabric to my linen and frayed the edges that way.....Whether you do it my way, or the way explained in the chart, you still have carrot tops attached these yummy carrots~~~

Thanks SamSarah for helping me add to my juicy spring collection of goodies.... tomorrow we get to decorate the craft room tree with more springtime treasures~~

Until then, Happy stitching~~

Faye

I LOVE THESE CARROTS! They are just perfect for an Easter display or year round.

p.s. It was so good to talk with you tonight. We need to get together soon. Miss you, Karen and Linda. After I hung up the phone, I kept thinking about the fun and giggles we had in Myrtle Beach!

How much fun. Better watch out Faye..the easter bunny will be taking those home with him when he comes to visit later this month.;)
You could go crazy with using up old floss to make interesting patterns. Neat idea SamSarah.
