Bunny Love :-)

I have been "collecting" the Bunny Hill Basket blocks designed by Anne Sutton and finally, I have some progress to show. These blocks are for January and February. I cut the pieces for them more than a couple months ago but never put needle to fabric.......until two weeks ago when I needed to sit down and relax, so I stitched up the snowman. Then it was off to our retreat but when I got back, I was anxious to finish the little birdies and basket.

I'm using the same background wool blend on all the blocks. Each basket will be a different wool color or pattern.
If I don't have the right color then I can just paint some white wool. I'll be posting more about that later on this week. I was going to do some wool painting/dyeing last week but then my daughter called and asked if Jacob could come for a visit and I thought, hmmm, he would probably really enjoy playing with the colors. So, that's what we will do one of the days that he is here and then we'll post the photos. :-)
I had a very busy day crazy quilting on Thursday and took some pics but haven't uploaded them yet. Yesterday, it was back to the vet for Kaiser and he's on a stronger med to relieve the itchy and redness. Thank goodness it's working as he finally got some sleep last night (and so did I). Today was a busy day with home projects. Tomorrow will be a busy one and then Jacob arrives in the afternoon. Hope you have a lovely Sunday! I'll be back on Monday.

Hi Sandi,
Your blocks looks so beautiful! I wish I could do them as lovely as yours.
I have a question for you. The little birds, are they painted? If so I really look forward to you telling us about how to paint on wool.

I wish I had a better collection of wool as I'd love to get started on mine but don't like the idea of "plain" solid baskets. Yours look terrific. Can't wait to learn about painting on wool. Enjoy your visit with Jacob. When is he arriving? I'd guess soon since school must be starting soon for him.

Gee I am so behind, I really have to get started on the Bunny Hill Blocks. I Love the plaid wool, can't even find any old clothes in a plaid. Yours look great!!

Karen said...

Can't wait to see the rest of them.

I really want to do these too. But I have to set priorities for my time. Yours are darling. Someday I'll have time to cut into that wool.

Those are really cute done in wool! I like them. Thanks for sharing. It's been so interesting to see how everyone interprets these simple blocks.
