About the Author

About Jenny McWhinney

After a wonderful childhood of travelling the world with her family, Jenny McWhinney settled in Australia. The inspiration for her embroidery is from nature itself and her early needlework projects involved simple stitches, really just 'colouring in' with threads, the creatures she had drawn. From there, she progressed to using a greater variety of stitches and threads, achieving a more sophisticated effect with stitch direction and colour, creating her now signature style. Her work is instantly identifiable and she has a strong following thanks to her many magazine articles published in Australia and internationally, and her fascinating classes conducted throughout Australia.



These charming and engaging bunnies will steal the heart of everyone who sees them. A cute book with 12 fabulous stitch projects suitable for every embroiderer from beginner upwards. There is surely a nod to Beatrix Potter here, but Jenny has injected her own style. She describes her thread painting as relaxed. The book is illustrated with her pencil and watercolour drawings as well as finished images of her work. Full sized line drawings are included for you to trace the patterns and detailed stitch instructions are included. There is also a stitch guide and a detailed, illustrated guide to thread painting. This book is a work of art whether you stitch anything or not. My guess is you will want to stitch all 12 delightful projects. For embroidery enthusiasts and lovers of bunnies. Recommended. This is a reprint of the 2003 book.
