Bunny Hill BOM

Yea! The Bunny Hill Block-of-the-Month top is completed. Now to just get it quilted. This was a very fun project. Each block has been hand stitched using the blanket stitch. What fun it was to do all the embellishments. I am hoping to embellish a bit more with some quilting. I'm not sure that I'm real crazy about my choice of sashing and borders, but I did not want to have to go out and buy more fabric.

Now I am starting another hand embroidery project, but it won't take a whole year to complete (I hope -- LOL!) Here's a sneak peak at the fabrics I will be using -- purple, green and white!

Sew Sunday Sew!

Here is the apron that I made for my partner in the "Cheap Hot Mama" Apron Swap. I sure hope she likes it!
The following is a project in progress. My Wacky Quilting Sisters and I swapped 2.5-inch charm squares -- 500 hundred of those lil suckers! I didn't worry about colors, placement, or anything. Just picked them up and sewed together. Here are mine sewn together with a small black border around them. I am not finished! I still have more to do. I'm thinking I will add another border of 1.5-inch half square triangles. Then, maybe, put it on point! Who knows.......You'll just have to watch this blog to see what happens! If you have any ideas, by all means, please share them.It has been great to get back into my studio to do some sewing. Now I think I'll do some hand embroidery while watching football with the hubby.
Ya'll all have a Blessed Sunday!!!
