Fleur de Bunny

Yippeeeeee!! It's finally finished. My new pattern "Fleur de Bunny." Get it??? The Fleur de Lis design with my signature bunnies. I just love how it turned out!
The colors of pink, green, brown and cream.
The pattern is available on my website.

It's got lots of mixed techniques including fusible applique, hand stitching with Valdani Floss (love this floss and will be carrying it), machine quilting and some pearl beads for a little bling. I like the primative look of the hand stitching in contrast to the pearl bead. A little small town meets big city.
Of course, someone decided napping under the box was a much better idea on a Sunday.
So while Razzy napped up in Bunnyville, I came down to spend a little time with Sugar.
She's been with me two weeks now and is doing pretty good. She's still pretty skittish, but she's warming up to me, especially when I bring her a salad. She jumps up and practically knocks the dish out of my hand. I've learned to hand her a piece of somthing first before I attempt to put the dish down. Poor thing eats like it's her last super.
I think she has the cutest face. Her ears are really long and she can twist them around and stand them up like a radar. Cracks me up. I think she's gonna have a great personality when she is brave enough/relaxed enough to let it out.
We are on schedule to have her spade on July 28.
Well, gotta get back to some sewing on a new pattern. Fun! Fun! Fun!
bunny hugs,
This week IGF beautiful fabrics and the inspiration that comes from them.

Hi Shell, I love, love, love your new pattern. Just beautiful. So much talent! I was hoping you would give us a Sugar progress report. I think she is so cute. I hope her and Razzy will be best bunny buds in no time at all.

Hey Shell!

Love your new pattern! Just so beautiful!!! And I love hearing your bunny tales...Have Razzy "seen" Sugar yet, and how was his response to her? Glad to know Sugar is getting used to her new home slowly. Can't wait to see how the bunnies interact with each other.

Have a great week!

Shell that pattern is incredible ! How clever CLEVER.

As for your new baby I bet when she learns she doesn't have to worry about getting food she will be fine.
Wailin' was the same way at first and would inhale her food, but now she knows she always has plenty to eat and doesn't do that any more.

What a lovely piece!!

And Sugar! She has so much control over ears! Yohji can only move him ears forward and back, kinda like a pendulum on a grandfather clock lol!
