My daughter gave me this book for Christmas.

It is page after page of deliciousness!

Just the inspiration I needed for this drawing:

New Bunnies

Just listed two new bunnies in my etsy shop. Each bunny seems to have its own personality. This bunny was made from a piece of brown vintage chenille that I bought on ebay. Yes I said brown. Rare, she said. After I sewed the bunny together, before I stuffed it, I noticed that the brown fabric was fading in the sun. I mean really fading, so I decided to just bleach the bunny and extra fabric and it came out pale yellow.

 This Brown bunny is made from scraps from a slipcover. ( Making the bunny was more fun than making the slipcover.)

Speaking of Quilts...

I'm trying my hardest not to start any more quilts until I finish the previously mentioned ones, but I'm confessing my temptation to you. I have Nancy J. Martin's Perpetual Calendar of 365 Quilt Blocks and the last few days have been hard for me because March has these cute blocks:

I love anything that has to do with tea, or teacups, or tea parties and I can just picture this tea pot made from some pretty vintage floral, or even a vintage tablecloth.

Or this tea cup with some embroidery on it.

A creamer!

And sugar bowl. Can't you imagine a whole tea party quilt with pretty china plates and cupcakes and all sorts of things!?  I'm trying to put it out of my mind for now. Maybe I will just do a little sketch, that's all, just one little sketch. One little sketch won't hurt will it?
