The April block of the Bunny Hill BOM featured a chocolate Easter bunny, a chick and Easter eggs. This block was fairly straightforward, and I even found a nifty basket weave print that worked well with the other colors in that month's design.
I decided that French knots were too floppy for eyes, so this time I tried a very small satin stitch circle for each of the eyes. Success! Until I rinsed the blocks. That's when the navy blue embroidery floss ran. Darn! It had been given to me by friends, left over from tying a quilt. My frugal nature made me want to use this floss, but after I realized that the dye was running, I tried to get as much running dye out of my applique block as possible and pitched the rest of that horrid stuff.
Lesson Learned: Cheap embroidery floss will only break your heart. Don't mess with it.
