A note from Bridget, the designer:
I like hares, they seem mysterious and yet very mischievous. I began the embroidery kit ideas with some beautiful photographs. I like to draw from photographs so I sketched a few ideas in pencil and experimented with coloured pencils and paint. I decided on a summer meadow location for the Hare because I like the big oxeye daisies (they are easy to embroider too) and the Harebell was an obvious choice because of its name and beautiful colours. The embroidery took me two weeks to complete during the Roadshow in Lisburn, in-between chatting to the exhibition visitors.
This is not a beginner’s kit, but would be suitable for those who have completed one of our Quaker Tapestry kits.
