Can you guess what I spent my morning doing?
Yup! I finish finished up a few things. I started last weekend on this one..
Harvest 1823 is one of my Crazy starts and finish. I planned this as I went! No real idea on how to finish but I'm happy with the result. I wanted to fill this with lizard sand but forgot to use fusible lining on the linen section. Oh well.
Also last weekend, I finally gave Dream Big some attention..
I had a marathon session with this. You know how it is..you smell a finish coming on and stay up late to get it finished! I had to look back in my posts to find when I started this and that was just last year. Not too bad. But today, here's what I did with it..
Eeeeeee!! I'm just in love with it. I attached white ric rac to the sides and pins that somewhat matched the hearts and the sun. I didn't put any beads at the bottom because I'm buying an easel for it. At the top is a funny beige ribbon. Here's another side..
Hope it's not too blurry. I believe the designer is CCN, Country Cottage Needleworks. It's very cute.
And here's Happy Bunny Bunny Day by the Trilogy. I started this last year, finished it, and left in on the unfinished pile until now..
Love how it turned out. I wanted to bring out the color of the heart so sewed in the hand dyed ric rac. I made up new cuss words sewing that ric rac to the dark green fabric! I spent more time ripping out seams than actual sewing. Sheesh. I like the look of it though! I only added two buttons instead of the six it called for. Finished it all off with the ivory-ish chenille trim.
My other 'bunny' design is an unknown freebie. Just a tiny thing, I added the grass, the sun peeking from the corner, his tail, and more flower. Here it is with the other bunnies!..
I'm done! Two Saturdays in a row of finishing...whew! I just found out this morning that Easter is April 2nd, so this is my Easter/Spring contribution.
Time to announce the winner of the magazine and fabric and that would be...
Congrats Jacquie! Email me at email@example.com to give me your mailing address. By the way, can you all let me know if I'm a no reply blogger? Frances gave me a head up on it. I went and tweaked a few things and I'm not sure if its fixed.
Thanks for coming by! Have a wonderful rest-of-the-weekend!
