Some spring bunnies!

Good afternoon!

Where does time go? I can't believe how the days are flying by-I don't know about you, but I feel as if I'm in a speed wobble:)

Is it the time of year or something, but all I seem to see is the cleaning that needs to be done-windows, laundry, cupboards, floors, bathrooms.....that's only inside; the ouside I can't bear to look at, after the winter hammering it has received!!

Don't get me wrong-I'm grateful to be able to do it, but sometimes its a tad overwhelming, possibly because I want it done yesterday:))

BUT..the main reason why I'm naffed?-I think I have just blew my chances at getting a little trip to the States!! Rather my sewing room has.

Hubs is into renewable enery stuff and we had discussed a little trip (just him and I) to Wisconsin-he would get to his show and I would get to ALL my fav quilting and prim shops:)) Sadly, the other night, I asked him to move some boxes in my sewing room, that I couldn't lift. Unfortunately, they were boxes FULL of fabric-hubs was disgusted at the stash and I was quite firmly enlightened, that I didn't need to go to any quilt shops for the rest of my life! Huh? A girl needs LOADSA stash!

Maybe it's time to make a few nice dinners.......humm

I have really enjoyed seeing all your beautiful homes and your spring decor. Decorating for spring is new to me, so I don't have much, but here are a few pics of some bits-actually, they seem to be all bunnies:))

These bunny eggs are a little difficult to see-here is one close up

These next little bunnies, came from Christine (Preferably Prim) I think they are very cute. Thanks again, Christine.

Thought I would try a little change of colour scheme-not red this time (tho' if you look closely, there is a fine red stripe in there!)
I made some of these eggs for my sister-her kitchen is these colours and I thought they looked lovely and fresh. The chocolate bunnies I made from wool.

Next, is a simple little project.I tried my hand at felting some wool this past week-the bunny and the background wool are the result. I was pleased with the felting, maybe I will try over-dying next time!

This is the time of year when I start gathering up bits and pieces of hand sewing to do, as from Easter on, we spend alot of time up at the North Coast. Now, I know these aren't spring, but, I loved them and just had to have them:)) So these are my 'summer' projects-aren't the wools just yummy...

(This is the kit and the pattern for the above little pic-I got these from The Quilted Crow)

I haven't had time to blog much recently and that only seems set to continue-what, with all the work I need to do and the Easter hols etc... but I hope you all have a lovely break and enjoy family time,

Spring is in the air!!

Hope this post finds you all enjoying nice sunshine! Although cool, it is so heartsome, having the sun shining. The only downside is, all I can see is dirty windows and dust!LOL A job for another day:)

I'm hoping my week only improves-we have had 2 quite stressful days, dealing with school bullying, but hopefully as we speak it has been resolved. Why do children want to be so mean sometimes and why do they have to suffer such hurt sometimes? Anyway, I will not sort it out here and now, so lets move on.

Here are a few bits of sewing I have been working on-time to sew seems to be evading me recently. I will have to change that somehow:))

This little bunny is made out of wool and backed with linen.

I have taken a liking to sheep and penny rugs.

A friend of mine (Christine from Preferably Prim) really loves pineapples, so this was made for her walls which she is decorating.

This next project has me in seventh heaven!! I am sooo enjoying making it-sure it contains all the things I love-wool, saltbox houses, willow trees and RED!!!
The background is darker and more mottled than the pic shows-it is to be framed as a picture.

Thought I would leave you with a little smile:) My son gets the job of putting away the toilet rolls after shopping!! Needless to say, they didn't get too far-who needs toys when they have toilet rolls-my son refrained from the pics (11yrs?)

Now for the fun part!

Even eating breakfast became a pleasure, instead of a chore:))

Have a great week,
Blessings, Shazy x
