Do you remember...

this little picture...
...Now I can tell you the secret I knew...
It has hopped over the Ocean to it´s new home...
It will have a wonderful new home and a fantastic owner...
and I ´m so happy that I could give her a little
...Happy Easter Surprise...
Pat has been the most generous and a wonderful friend...
Some of you might remember a story about a package never coming ...
taking its own travel to Israel before deciding to come to me...
Well short story...
thanks to Pat I got these lovely fabrics... that were just perfect for
Easter... and the Bunnies ...they were so cute...
think they were a perfect match!!
And what do you think happened...
Yes the other package arrived too.. well a bit late...but it came...
So we joke about this ...
when a package is late... that it might have taken a little trip to Israel...
"Bunny Tales"
Pattern by Jo Ann Mullaly
Thanks for a fantastic friendship Pat!!!
I have started on a Bunnyquilt for myself too... stitched two blocks... and then I got distracted ...
started to sew something else... and sewed the pincushion and yesterday evening I started to punch needle...
And oh so much fun this is...
I sure hope Im doing this right...
but I think there is a bunny ...when I turn this whole thing and take a little peek...
...might have used too few rows for the lettering...or maybe I could have used three threads... well I guess I have to learn a lot...
One thing I know ..I will have a lot of fun while learning..
thanks to you Ginger...
Better get back to some punch needleing...have a background to fill...
See you...


  1. Well, look at all these bunnies. The quilt is so cute. Punch needle is fun once I got the stitches to stay in. And I have to get the hoop stand. It looks like you have one.

  2. Hi Stina, what a lovely bunny quilt...I'm sure Pat will treasure it. And your bunny in the needle punch is very cute too.
    cheers Julz

  3. Pat's quilt is darling--- I love that designer. I've never needlepunched? Kind of scared to find a new hobby...You'll have to tell me if you like it.

  4. I can understand Pat's excitement at receiving a package of you. The wall hanging is gorgeous. The fabrics you have used are so lovely - what range/ranges are they from?

  5. Hooray you have tried the needle punch and looks like you are coming right along!
