Honey Bunny

Isn't she sweet? She's 'Hoppin Along Sampler' from Country Stitches. The pattern came in the mail last week and I couldn't wait to start it (I think all the stash I ordered from Market is coming via Pony Express for as long as it's taking). Anyway, I loved her so much, I threw all those SAL's aside and started right in. I changed all the colors though as I wanted something a little more springy and backed her with muslin instead of more Belfast Linen (muslin being so much cheaper than linen). She was so much fun to do! Although in the construction phases, when I just had the body done both my kids asked me why I was making a dinosaur (I should have taken pictures). KIDS!!!

That's it for today. I've got progress pics to show, but I'll do those another day. My kids are home from school today and they want to go shopping and try to set the charge card on fire! They both need so much with it becoming warmer now, I have a funny feeling that's going to happen!

Love the bunny! How cute! As for the shopping -- hey, enjoy it while you can! I had to drag my son out to get the pants and shorts he needed. He kept complaining that he needed new pants, but seemed to think that they would appear magically or something! lol! Teenagers!

That bunny is just tooo cute! Great job, Deb! Enjoy the shopping. My son is in the same boat as Margaret's--he needs new pants but won't go with me to buy them. Agh!

OH my, what an ever so cute bunny that is, Deb! What a wonderful way to usher in Spring, which I think that we are anticipating! Of course, it is supposed to be down in the 30's again tomorrow in my neck of the woods!

I must say I love, love, love your blog background, think it is the colors, red and gold are definitely faves of mine!;)

Your bunny is adorable, no wonder you had a great time making her. It's great when you find something so inspiring to do.

The littlehoney bunny looks so lovely. And it's already on my wish list. Although I follow my stash diet there are things that I don't want to miss.
