PiP's....What's that?? Well, yet another Block of the Month I signed up to do.  A huge quilt.  I decided to choose my own colors, rather than those recommended....Patriots in Petticoats:

Block #1(sorry - not pressed )

Block #2

...woke up this morning with a particular project in mind.  I have been thinking about doing this one for some time.  I put the finishing touches on "it" this evening....may I introduce ~ Gabi:

From her little flowered wool hat to her funny big feet....

She's my little angel. :))
Although I have named my little angel, Gabi, she is from Rosalie Quinlinn's pattern for "Sarah."
I decided she needed some hair and also left off the doves.

My model of Rabbits Prefer Chocolates by Bunny Hill Designs for Bears Paw Fabrics is done!  I added lots of litle bits of stitchery once the final borders were added.  Enjoy:

Springing....not a word in the sense I am using it....Spring is about to be sprung!!  Yeah!  Finally, the weather is a bit warmer, the grass is beginning to show a hint of green  and all the llittle buds are appearing on the ends of the branches of the trees. 

Now a few (very wrinkly) pictures of my Rabbits Prefer Chocolate blocks all together.  I have three more borders to applique with the scallops for the final finish on this one.  I had ironed it all nice and pretty to show Judy at Bears Paw Fabrics.  Of couse, afterwards it was folded and put into a bag to carry home...hence all the wrinkles.  I intend to press it once again after the remaining three borders are attached.

First.....here's my red version of Miss Henrietta Whiskers! I cannot decide which one I like the best this time.   The Blue, the Red or the Pink!

I know, I know.....just call me crazy....three versions of the same thing!  Well, (sort of justifying..one of them is not mine...the blue one belongs to Bears Paw Fabrics). 
But take a look at this...I am so happy with how this one is turning out in the felt....so bright and cheerful!  The color scheme is not my ordinary choice of colors, but I am very happy with it, so far.  Home Sweet Home freebie from Pacific Patchwork:

A little blue

Say hello to another cute little squirrel!:)

Pink Henrietta

Here she is...Block Three for Henrietta Whiskers by Bunny Hill Designs.  This is my "pink" version for myself.  I am also working on the "blue" version for Bears Paw Fabrics to display...almost done Block Three for that one, too!

I love her little pink wagon filled with her yummy acorns. :))

A little peek

My "pink" Henrietta Whiskers, a teeny peek at Block Three.  Isn't her little button too cute?  Anne Marieke purchased a nice selection of pink buttons for me to use in my "pink" version.  Henrietta is pulling a pretty pink wagon filled with delicious acorns.  Once I finish all the surface stitching for this block, there will be a picture of the full size block.

And who is Henrietta's pink friend??  He will have to remain a little bit of a mystery for now...Let's just say he "jumped" into my cart while I was shopping at Target today. ;)
