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!

Snow Happy Hearts

Anne Sutton, of Bunny Hill Designs, is offering these very cute snowmen for the next twelve months.  She has shown them finished as small, stuffed pillows.  I decided to use the pattern to make a full-size quilt.  Here are the first six months of the blocks that I have made a layout to use for these snowman.  The first two, January and February, are shown.

Plus, a little sneak peek at what I am working on now.....
Lots of little birdies and a few other friends. :)

Annabelle's Adventures

Wow!  How can it be February already?!  I guess that means it is time for the last two blocks for Annabelle's Adventures.  But wait, it's not over yet!  The border instructions will be here next month.

Here is a close-up of Block 11.  Annabelle is all dressed up as an Indian for Thanksgiving.

For December (Block 12) Annabelle has her golden wings, shiny halo and, of course her harp.

For a little bunny, Annabelle has certainly had a busy year,  I hope you have enjoyed this adventure along with Annabelle and I.  :)

Be sure to keep a lookout for the borders, for the finishing touch to this fun adventure!

Little Bo Sheep!

She is my new wool felt and cotton fabric doll.  She is about 12", not including the length of her legs  
I have begun making her wool felt accessories for each month.  The picture shows her warm, wool felt scarf and her mittens on a string for January.  Anybody else remember these as "idiot" mittens?  (Pull one and smack yourself in the face with the other one?)

I have a cute, little red vest with a heart for February.  She has been a lot of fun to make, and trying to come up with some fun ideas for her accessories.

Any suggestions for the upcoming months are welcome!

Blocks 9 and 10 - Annabelle's Adventures

Blocks 9 and 10 for Annabelle's Adventures are available on Craftsy.  Thanks for taking a peek. :))

~ 2015 ~

Here we go!  A fresh, new start!  I don't necessarily think about resolutions and such at the beginning of the new year.  I love thinking about all the new projects I can try.  I don't always think about how I am going to get all these new lovelies finished, however! LOL!!  But isn't that the fun of new beginnings, whether it be a new year or a new project?  All that excited anticipation of something 'new.'  :))  I wish all of you an exciting year filled with wonderment and, of course, anticipation! ;)

Love these crazy, little guys!

Stay tuned...Blocks 9 and 10 for Annabelle's Adventures are on their way. :)
