Bunny Hop

Easter's been showing up around my home the last few days.  I still have some tweeking/embellishing left to do, but the "bones" of the decorations are up and I took a few photos to share.

Just inside the front door is this small catch-all table.


The livingroom:


Another view--the small hanging was made from a vintage image printed onto cloth from Olde America Antiques--love their stuff!


In the entry way from the livingroom to the kitchen and the rest of the house hangs Rabbit Transit.  I want to put something--greenery or something--up at the top along the rod but I don't seem to have anything quite "right."  I guess I'll need to take a little shopping trip . . . .


Between Rabbit Transit and the kitchen . . .


I'm a little conflicted with the shamrock tabletopper--I really want to put my Easter tabletopper on, but shamrocks will do for now.  See the carrots in the hutch?  Remember when I did the tutorial to make those?


More of those carrots there in the rail station clock.  I'm not quite satisfied with this display yet but I'm not sure where I'll go with it.  It just looks a little bare to me.


The Spring! quilt--this one always makes me smile!  I think it was the first pattern I designed and published.  A couple quilters who made it eliminated the tulip stems and used green rickrack instead--what a great idea!


Yep, there are the creepy rabbits.  I didn't realize until now, but Mrs. Rabbit isn't sitting in a very ladylike manner.  I'll need to go adjust her posture.


I made this quilt as a picnic quilt but it works just great as a spring time cover for the Wild Child's bed--can you see Spike sleeping on top of the pillows?  She was ignoring me!  I need to make a couple pillow shams to match the quilt--the border is Lecien fabric and I know I have more.


Seeing these quilts and projects around the house inspired me to list a few patterns, kits, and fabric in my Etsy shop today, and when I was going through my stock, it occurred to me it might be a good time for a little giveaway.  Would you like to win a kit containing all the wool and embellishments needed to make a little rabbit pillow?


Leave me a comment telling me you want me to enter your name.  I'll pick a winner Thursday night to be announced on Friday's blog post.  Good luck!  (If you don't trust your luck and want a sure thing, I have a couple more kits listed in my Etsy shop--just click the link in my sidebar.)
