Finally

If you are anything like me when you check your "regular" blogs...if there is nothing new for several days...you start checking back and checking back...thinking...there has to be something new today. Well...it has been several days. But I have been busy....appliqueing again! This time it is another Bunny Hill Designs pattern called Bunny Run. Now the original design is very pretty with nice pinks and lavenders and purples. I tried - I really tried to make those colors work for me. I bought pinks and lavenders and purples....Laid them out...rearranged them. Waited a few days and tried again. I just could not get a nice combination to work for me. So it got put away for a few weeks.

Then Friday a week ago, I woke up and said...I am going to work on Bunny Run, but with "my" colors. I traced and cut, measured and sewed. I actually finished the majority of the piecing on Friday. Very different from the original...but so far, I'm happy with it. There will be one more larger outer rust border with the four-patch squares in the check and black print. I still have to applique the flower vine with the birds in the top cream- colored border.

Oh, and my bunny will get a very pretty little rose-colored heart button (thanks, Isabelle!) for her eye. The little bird's eye is going to be a small black bead or French knot with little stem stitch legs.
