Snow Happy Hearts - June

Another month and a new Snow Happy Heart!  Here is June's heart from Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs:

Here are a few shots of a special project I made for a friend of mine to celebrate her birthday.  This one is called "Spider Plant."  My friend dislikes spiders immensely. ;)  Of course, I had to make something with spiders!
The three main spiders.  One to wish upon a star to never have another spider in your house again.  Another with a bulls eye...aim and stomp!  And the third, have a heart - let them go.

Snow Happy Hearts

I finished the latest Snow Happy Hearts snow girl at the beginning of the month.  Forgot to post a picture! 

I can not believe that this one is almost half way there!

A new beginning!  I finally opened a Facebook page for The Quirky Hare & Co. designs.  It seems I spend less and less time posting here on Blogger.  I will keep updates about my designs on the Facebook page for now.  Here is the link for anyone who might be interested:

There are times (lots) when I feel totally uninspired to work on anything.  I have a ton of projects in the works; however, there are those days when nothing, I mean nothing, appeals to me.  But, then I have one of those days where the sun is shining, the birds are chirping and a completely, brand new idea pops into my head and calls my name.  It's these sort of projects I love.  They seem to go together quickly and already complete without any struggle on what to do next. 

Wooly Patches is one of those!  Small, simple, and fun!  Little Bo Sheep and her friends make an appearance.  I knew I wanted something, simple, but graphic.  And so we have, Wooly Patches:

 A bit of patchwork; a little applique; some wool felt and checkerboards!  I think those wider borders call for a fancy quilt design!

I hope you enjoy this new one.  I had a lot of fun working on these 'wooly' friends!

Can you believe it?  Considering the weather the past few weeks, it is a bit difficult to realize that it really is April! But...things are improving!  We had wonderful weather yesterday for Easter. :)

Look who helped to celebrate with her chocolate bunny!  Little Bo Sheep is ready for those April showers with her brand, new raincoat.  And look...a few little raindrops have splashed onto the front.


 I finished my Snow Happy Hearts for March and April.  Actually March was finished last month; I forgot to post the pictures. Ooops!  Some one else who is ready for those April showers

I have the center of the quilt all prepared for the remaining snowmen.  There will be a lot less work to do for those months. Only a few borders to add at the end.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

2015 Easter Project from Esther Aliu Designs

Gotta love this bunny couple!  This is the center of Esther Aliu's 2015 Easter Project. 

Here's the entire piece.  It is a nice size...not too large. 
I decided to add a lot of embellishments to my version.  Quite a few beads along with some wool felt accents and some embroidery, as well.  A fun project, just in time for Easter.
I know the black egg may seem a bit odd.  However, I have always been fascinated by  Ukrainian Easter eggs.  Those are a bit more colorful than mine, but I wanted something 'similar.'

Annabelle's Adventures

The last part of Annabelle's Adventures, the borders and the wool felt applique flowers, star circles and leaves, are available on Craftsy.  Unfortunately, once again, I have been unable to post the pictures here on Blogger.  I have tried several different times today, with no success. 

If you are interested in seeing Little Bo Sheep's March attire, however, you can check out my Facebook page. 

Thanks for stopping by!
