Happy Spring and Easter

Tiny bunny with miniature bears - all hand sewn
Our snow this week melted quickly.
The spring flowers are out in full force.

With a spring theme, pictured is a favorite bunny.
I made her when my daughter was little.  The clothing is all hand embroidered, including the bee on her shoulder.  There are a few bead embellishments added to numerous embroidery stitches.
The two bears in her lap I stitched from kits.  Many years ago I made many bears and bunnies.  I enjoyed working with mohair and velvets.  The little bears are all hand sewn.

At that time my quilting consisted of primarily doll quilts.

Here the bears are next to a ruler.
Don't you love the bunny slippers?

I checked, and the company I bought from is still in business.  However, these same kits are no longer available.  They do have many other tempting little choices.

I have completed quite a few of the tiny kits, and enjoyed each one.  I'll share more in a future post.

We have been busy with home projects and spring cleaning.  I think the painting is DONE...for now anyway.

Of course lots of quilting has also been happening and I have much to share in future posts!

In the mean time - Happy Spring and Easter!
