Bunny Gets Religion

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!

Vintage Vogart Transfer Patterns

See "PotLuck" two posts down.

Bias Tape Birds

I have never seen bias tape used for this effect. Planning on making an apron pocket out of it.

Pot Luck

I bought a bag of vintage transfer patterns - this is the second embroidery I have completed. Seemed like a good posting for St. Patricks Day.

Barbie and Miss Tiggywinkle

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".

The Hobie Hustler

It's getting so close to skateboarding season. This is the Hobie Hustler I have had since I was 13. I just started riding again a few years ago. There is nothing else like it -

Repurposed Pendleton

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.

Lake Needlepoint

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...
