Jingle Bell Bunny and the Winner of the Sitchery Kit!

Hello there. How are ya'll doing? Well.. I can hardly believe it is almost Christmas. Time is just flying by faster than my short little legs can keep up with it! I really want to sit my butt on the couch and look at a new decorating/design book I just got as my Christmas present to myself, but alas, I still have too much to get done first.

I participated in an ornament swap over at Quilt and Stitch Marketplace. I showed you the image I wanted to use in an earlier post. This is what my finished ornament looks like. I made 4 for the swap and I made (I mean I'm making) several for some dear friends. I named my ornament "Jingle Bell Bunny." Why I feel the need to name things is beyond me, but I do. hee,hee,hee. I had a few issues with glitter dysfunction (operator of glitter) but finally I got it to work out like I wanted. Of course it's white... What did you think it would be?? hee,hee,hee.
What do you think of it? I think it's really cute.

The following are the ornaments I have received in the swap. I'm still missing one and I'll post a picture when it gets here.

This pinky rosey ornament came from my good friend Gail Caldwell at The Sassy Beach

This one came from my friend Regina DeMatteo at Doodle Buddies

and this one came from my friend Ava Langner at Sew Into It
Thanks so much girlfriends! I had the best time creating an ornament for you and swapping!

Now... onto the winner of the 12 Day's of Christmas Stitchery Kit. So again I went to http://www.random.org/ and again I entered in the numbers. This time 1 through 25 and I couldn't believe it when it again picked the number 6! Ok... so 6 is my lucky number... could that be why? Who knows? So anyway, I counted down from the top this time since last time I counted up from the bottom. The winner is.... Karin from Australia! How cool is that! My little stitchery kit will make the journey to Australia! Boy do I sure wish I could make the journey to Australia! I've always wanted to go there. There are tons of fabulous stitchery friends there that I would love to hang out with.

Congratulations Karin! I'll send you an email too so you can send me your "addy."

bunny hugs,

Your Jingle bunny is so cute. It would make a nice pattern so we could all make one for next Christmas. I mean a pattern to buy. I would definately buy one. Congragulations to Karin on winning the kit. I am on my last ornament on row 2. I went and bought my pom-pom fringe today. I will send you a picture when I finish.

Shell, I love your new design! I am certain your dear ones will be thrilled to receive their gifts! Now, I am very surprised that the bun bun's did not do the random pick -- I mean, so many hops would be the number to win? LOLL! And do tell what the bunnies are getting for Christmas -- I won't tell!
