2012 Free BOM Theme

"So let me see if I understand this Harrington. Mama is designing her 2012 Free BOM for all her bloggy friends and she's decided on a theme. The new BOM is going to stand for "Buns of the Month" and it's going to be "The Adventures of Harrington and Hannah."
"Yep, that's right Hannah. Mama is so excited about this new project. It's going to have stitching, wool applique and patchwork! She's working on the designs now and say's it's going to be lots of fun! It's going to be fashioned in Mama's folk art style with colors her friends will love! It's going to be something totally different for her."
"So...does this mean we get a raise?"

Shell here. I can't wait to show you the new project! I would like to know if you prefer the patterns to come out on the 1st of the month or the 15th? Which is better for your schedule?

Happy Friday and have a fun weekend!
xx, shell, harrington and hannah

Oh the 15th please - too much starts the beginning of the month and by mid way I am looking for something fresh. Have wanted to try a wool project - great start. And yes, the buns need a raise.

The Fab Furs said...

If the buns were the inspiration for the BOM, then they should get royalties.

Jade said...

Ooooh, can't wait to see it unfold--and Mick and I both think your adorable assistants need a raise. He says extra treats, I say extra smooches. :)

Fiona said...

I will have to do this one, I managed the blocks last year.. this year I haven't done one!!! but I will.... for me I don't mind either date ... extra strokes and tickles for bunnies...

Sunnybec said...

Ooo sounds good. Any day for me, as it's free I am just grateful for it.
If I can't do it when it comes out it can always be saved for a later date.

Jeanette said...

Ooo i can't wait Shell. Any date will be good. I'll fit it no matter what. :) Hugs,

Melody said...

You are so good to us Shell. Any date would be fine with me. Hugs to the bunnies.

Wivi said...

How exciting! I prefer the 15th for the same reason as the "Vroomans' Quilts" above.

The Farmer's Attic said...

This sounds wonderful! Any day that works for you works for me.

gill said...

Looking forward to this one! Any day sounds good to me - you choose!!

Wendy @ Ravenwood Whimzies said...

Hi Shell-Sounds like a lot of fun! Whatever works for you is fine with me! Enjoy your weekend!

Barb said...

I can not wait to see what you design...

Linda said...

Oh boy! Can't wait to see the new BOM!

Mommarock said...

Somehow the 1st is just easier to remember. Weird.. but true. My mind is getting washy. Only so much can fit in there at one time.

Denise :) said...

Either is fine for me! How fun -- I cannot WAIT! :)

Just Ramblin' said...

Either is fine for me as I just make a notation on the calendar or I will have you post delivered to my mailbox so I won't miss any. Thanks for sharing your talents with us. Nola

Chris said...

Oh.....this sounds so exciting! Whichever date is great with me. So - are the bunnies getting a raise?

Charmed Life said...

How exciting. Already I have something to look forward to in 2012. 1st or 15th...whichever is best for you. The 15th is nice though...a sweet mid-month surprise!

Hillbilly Tonya said...

Oh, Shell I am so excited!! I didn't do very many BOM's last year and this next year I am choosing VERY CAREFULLY. Of course, I want to do this one!! I will start saving now, as I know there will be wool expense, but I just am so excited. Go for the 15th. Or January 21st. My bday. LOL.

Yes, you sweet babies, a raise is in order!

MosaicMagpie said...

Wool Applique! Now that does sound exciting!

Anneke Potgieter said...

How excited, can't wait, love your new folkart style. Well whatever the date is fine with me. Thanks for giving us something to look forward to.

Sherri said...

Shell, I can't wait to see your new wonderful things!! Anytime of the month is great for me-I just love seeing your creations!! Have a great weekend! I love the Bunnies!

Sheila said...

Shell, either day will work for me. I'm just excited for what sounds like it will be so different, I can't wait. Thanks Harrington and Hannah also for being the inspiration.

Love Bears All Things said...

Either way, looking forward to seeing something new and exciting.

Karen M said...

shell, this sounds like a lot of fun. And it does seem like the Buns should get some kind of compensation. Maybe some nice molding installed in the Bunnitentiary?

JCnNC said...

You can call the shots and know that we will all show up for the party - 1st or 15th. I just put it in my daily computer reminder. Feeling better and getting stronger. Have a wonderful weekend, Shell. Judy C

Susanne said...

Looking foreward to see your BOM, what ever day you chose I will look for the pattern, and I think that the bunnies must have some goodies for there inspiration to you. Have a nice weekend, best regards Susanne from Denmark

Lisa said...

Bunny BOM?! BUNNY BOM?!?! I'm so excited!!! I might need to learn to sew, even though I definitely don't have the time.

Cobi said...

this new bom sounds exiting. buns and appliqué,2 favorites of mine combined. I just cannot wait, but right now I'd be too busy to start on it anyway, so its a good thing I have to wait. I'm always pretty busy in the beginning of the month so the 15nd would suit me better.

Kim Q said...

Either day is fine by me! But tell me...I haven't done anything in wool before...will you have any kits in your shop for this?

Di said...

I was going to say the 1st but doesnt really matter either way. Thankyou for planning a new BOM.

Rebecka said...

What a great idea!! I think the first of the month and then you have time to work on the entire month. But, what you decide will be great! Hugs!

Rosa said...

Can´t wait to see your new BOM.

Gloria J W said...

Hi Shell.... smooches to the funnies.... well the 15th sounds a good number to me.. I'm just loving this years BOM and I think the 2012 one sounds just great!! Do bunnies need more food...no.. more cuddles..well...probably no... so where do they want the raise to go??? Give me a good answer, and I for one would consider it... They already are getting premier accomodation..hmmm what else could they have??? Hugs to you all..

tink's mom said...

I'm there with Kim Q. I haven't tried wool applique yet and a kit of the parts would be most helpful no matter what day of the month.

Kd said...

Oh, how fun! How hoppy can the bunnies get? Can't wait to see Harry & Hanny in wool with one ear up and one ear down! Kd - www.KdQuilts.com

quiltpatch said...

Either day is fine...and thank you for all that you do for us. Your designs are the greatest!!!

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Shell,

How exciting to have your sweet bunnies,... being 'Bunnies of the Month'
Sounds like they should be featured on a calender.
I really look forward to seeing your new design and whatever day suits you best.

Hope that you have a happy weekend
Hugs
Carolyn

Allie said...

Now that is VERY exciting, Shell - I can't wait to see!!! I love the idea of Hannah and Harrington immortalized in fabric! And Shell, first of the month...not sure I could wait til the 15th!

linny said...

I am so looking forward to this BOM. I will be happy with either day.
Really enjoy reading your blog.

Rabbits' Guy said...

1st .. no 15th .. wait .. 1st ... oh, ah .. 15th? .. (how about the 7th?) The whole project shall be eagerly awaited, included by those of us creatively challenged and only able to watch!!!

kc said...

Ah, kind of you to ask, but, seriously, if it's bunnies, who really cares when the hop in? As long as they hip hop over, there'll be plenty of greens, apples, carrots & hugs waiting for them here!!

Can't wait!!! Thank you for sharing such cuddly goodness!

Carrie P. said...

sounds like it will be cute. I am good with either date. Whatever works for you.

Christina said...

Cant wait! I can only assume you were speaking to the bunnies with regards to a schedule....

gail said...

Hi Shell, I love the BOM theme. I know the Buns are honored:) (they may deserve a raise, or at least some new fancy lettuce) I hope you are having a nice day.

I have no preference to when you publish the pattern Shell! Whatever works with your schedule :) I have my 10 months of Hearts all stitched, just waiting for the last 2!! Can't wait for the new patterns!
