I cannot resist this kind of scenic image fabric. And doesn't bunny look right at home? I got this piece on ebay this week. There's nothing quite like that "Oh I won it" feeling. And oh that ebay feeling when you really want something and just get outbid. Sometimes you get the bunny, sometimes...

I was inspired by Hillary Lang at Wee Wonderfuls to make this little tableaux. I put my felt bunny, and the bunny my Aunt Loretta knit for my daughter Mae when she was a baby in a setting with "The Little House" by Virginia Lee Burton. Be sure to check out my inspiration at Wee Wonderfuls!

I made Barbie clothes for about 10 minutes. Actually, I made two dresses before I decided I couldn't do it anymore. I wish I had a dress like this one... Barbie is surrounded by vintage patterns from my Aunt Loretta, and Miss Tiggywinkle - a gift from my Mom - the bottom reads "Miss Tiggywinkle Takes Tea".

I made this hat from a Pendleton jacket that didn't fit very well. It's the best one I have made yet - but I don't think that I am the one who should wear it. My daughter Mae begged me to let her make a face on the styrofoam head form, I finally relented.

A favorite thriftstore needlepoint. It reminds me of Pentwater, Michigan - where my parents had a summer home for a couple of years. We had a Sunflower I could sail myself, and my Dad moored a 23 foot sailboat at the local marina that we would sail on Lake Michigan. Hoping to make it to Pentwater this summer...
