Flat Out Fun Day in Bunnyville

So after my bout of food poisoning yesterday (ick) and a migraine that wouldn't go away because the weather was so darn icky (ouch) and pretty much spending the entire day in bed (boring) today was a much better day. In fact, today was a "flat out" fun day here in Bunnyville.

Razzy being "flat out" happy after chewing on a new toy.

Sugie being "flat out" happy after getting the rest of the pellets from Razzy.

So I'm "flat out" happy because I'm almost done with my latest design and I love how it is turning out!


Bet you'll never guess where I get my inspiration from? hee,hee,hee.

This is the Valdani 3 strand floss I'm using. It's called Early Spring. Of course I have to use some glass pearls too. I mean that's kinda my signature and all.
I hope to have the finished piece done and the pattern available by next Monday. I'll also have complete kits for sale. It will have everything you need to make this fun project just in time for Spring, a wedding gift, or just cause you "flat out" want to!

Your friend,
shell

When your bunnies lay with their feet out and not tucked, you know they are relax and don't have a care!!
I am loving your stitching!! Can't wait to see the finished piece. I see bunnies.

Love the colours in that thread! So very pretty.
Food poisoning and a migraine at the same time? Not fair! Hope you feel much better and are as relaxed as the bunnies!

Hi Shell,
Razzy and Sugie really know how to relax and chill out!:)
I love their little furry legs. My cat sleeps like that too, with his legs stretched out. Animals always know how to get comfy.;)
Your sewing looks very beautiful with amazing detail. I really like patchwork...We have an American museum just up the road from where we live and it has some lovely antique patchwork from the US.
I read that all the family use to get involved in making patchwork quilts and then pass them down the family as wedding gifts. I think this is a lovely idea!:)
Speak to you soon my dear friend.

So sorry to hear that you were sick. My sister suffers from migraines so I understand how they cripp0le you, but to have food poisoning on top, this is bad. I do hope you are feeling better and looking at your sweet bunnies, I know that would help. I love how they are stretched out and comfortable. Love your ombre thread embroidery. So lovely and perfect for spring. Sea Witch

Poor you, I'm so sorry, how rotten for you. Take care and make sure that you get plenty of R and R - these things really take it out of you.

I do love those roses on your new design, and that beautiful thread is yummy!

Shell,
Glad you are feeling better - not fun, those yucky 'back-to-back' things.
You bunnies are the cutest things I've seen recently - love the laying flat look!
Your new projects are wonderful & I just love them, too!

Ah stretched out bunnies are happy bunnies:D That looks like a nice little wicker toy, where'd you get that? I give our buns untreated wicker baskets but they apparently only like to chew the ones that aren't for them! ha ha.
