Dandelion fluff and Golden Apples

 
So...I'm nearly finished with this new pattern. I loved embroidering the Dandelion Fluff using two different flosses:  Dmc variegated and Dmc Color Variations. Dandelion Fluff and Apple picking reflects a feeling of late summer to me and I hope it does to most of you too! This is a very special Apple tree though because it has a golden apple. In Greek mythology  the golden apple often is a symbol for discord but in Norse mythology it was said to give to gods eternal life. Whatever it means, bunny doesn't seam too sure if she should pick it!

p.s.
During the kids' Winterbreak, the Follow the White Bunny Etsy shop will be closed (that is Saturday the 20th until the following Saturday) and I will also be taking a blog-break then!
