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,

  1. I just love your springtime decor! Your wool chocolate bunnies are adorable! The wool felting mat with bunny is so cute....I have been wanting to try that ....one of these days! LOL!Lovely summer projects you are gathering....I need to have "busy hand's" always too! Have a great day.

  2. You'll just have to twist his arm ever so nicely to get to Wisconsin!!!lol!
    Love the stash you already have and the bunnies you made.
    I had to laugh when I saw the twigs and lovely little eggs hung on them as I've just finished hanging little chicks from my twigs! Clearly we're on the same wave length!
    Have a relaxing afternoon if possible!!!

  3. Hey Shazy, I've missed you in blogland! We love the very same types of patterns and wool I see! I had that snowman pattern on my list I want to order! LOL

    All your bunnies, eggs, etc. are too cute!

    You need to talk hubs into coming to the states anyway, but closer to Ky! Wisconsin is too far for me to drive! LOL

    I finally posted pics of my kitchen on my blog the other day ~ come by when you get a chance!

    Have a great week!


  4. Shazy,
    Your work is amazing! I love everything you do! I know exactly what you mean about cleaning ~ everywhere I look in my house, I see something that could use a good cleaning! Oh, if only there were more hours in a day!

    I definitely agree that you should make your hubby some fantastic dinners ~ the states are calling your name girlfriend!

    Have a blessed week!

  5. I'm so glad you left a comment on my blog so that I could come visit you. If I had a chance to visit only one country outside the USA, I would pick Ireland. Truly. I just imagine how beautiful it is there. Minus the mud of course.
    Love your felted bunny project. You go girl.

  6. Boy o boy do we have the same taste or what? I blogged about that very snowman pillow :o) And hey, we have look-a-like blogs! And I live in Wisconsin :o)

  7. What is it about spring that makes you want to clean everything? I'm like you, I want it all done now!

    That's too funny about your husband. Mine's the same way. I'm thankful he has hobbies though. When he spends, I get to spend. =]

    I love your spring decorating, especially the things you have been making and sewing! Very cute!

    Have a wonderful week my friend~

  8. What yummy eye candy... and I say the more (fabric) the merrier!!

  9. I love your bunny eggs! Sooo cute! and I see someone has been doing some serious shopping...lol! Good taste ;)
    Have a Happy Easter,
    Love Wendy Xx
