Dieter the Dragon, Bunnies and a Reminder

Well hi there! Is it me or did the weekend just fly by? Are you ready for Wednesday and block two of The Adventures of Harrington and Hannah? I AM!!! I"M SO EXCITED I COULD POP!!!

Ok... I may have to go to decaf coffee in the morning. hee,hee,hee.

I wanted to show you the cutest things I got! I have long admired the folk art of my friend Deb, of Paxton Valley Folk Art. The other week I was visiting her blog and I saw Dieter the Dragon!

Isn't he the cutest thing?! I could hardly hit the purchase button fast enough! Since this is the year of the dragon and I love Deb's art, I just had to have him!

When Dieter arrived, he brought along a little friend, Miss Patchwork Bunny. Dieter was so glad she came to live here in Bunnyville too. (He's kissing her ears, not trying to eat her. Although the look on her face say's she's not happy with all his slobber.)


Thank you Deb! I just love them and I'm so excited to have your wonderful folk art in my home!


Then I got this surprise from Mary Flynn of Quilt Hollow! This gorgeous quilt mat!

Mary is an incredible Long Arm Quilter. I love this design so much, I'm sending her some fabric to have her quilt the design for some pillows. Cool huh? Thank you Mary! I love this mat and have the perfect spot for it! Hop over and visit Mary if you have a quilt you need quilted. She does excellent work!

Alrighty then, back to work for me. Have a fun day and I'll see you Wednesday with the next Harrington and Hannah block! Woo hoo!!!!

xx, Michelle

What a fun mat and your dragon is a hot little item.

Deb Paxton Valley Folk Art said...

LOL Shell, I am so glad that you like Dieter and Miss Patchwork Bunny! And you are right, she really does NOT look happy about Dieter drooling on her :O) Your quilt mat from Mary is amazing, I cannot believe the detail in her design, those bunnies are beautiful! I am in awe of anyone who can quilt, it is quite beyond me. Can't wait to see BOM #2, I can't believe that it is the middle of February already?! Thanks dear friend for your lovely post and I hope Dieter brings you much luck! Deb

Deb is a genius, I love dragons! I can see why you fell for him.xxx

Sherry said...

Your dragon is soo cute, and the bunny too. I am excited about block 2 but I have to get myself in gear and get one done. I had a sore shoulder, which is much better, that held me back but I am ready to go at it now.

Jeri Landers said...

I am going to send you some of my fabric so's you can make Harrington a special something or other.

Hi:) I sure love the dragon. What a cutie and I love the patchwork bunny too! That is also a gorgeous quilted mat. I wish I had access to a longarm machine. She is very talented!
