Happy Friday!


"Hello and happy Friday! We've had a very busy week around Bunnyville. Papa had surgery on his elbow Tuesday. Mama said, 'it wasn't exactly what she had in mind for a Valentines gift,' but she's glad Papa's arm will be ok in a few months.

Then Mama made a huge mess all over the couch. She likes to lay out fabrics and put colors together. She's been working on lots of new Folk-Art Fusion pieces for her book Briarside Lane.
Here's one color combination. More muted.

Here's the other color combination. More bright.
Which one do you like best?"

"Hi there! Have you been working on your next Harrington and Hannah block? There are already some photos posted to the Flickr group (see sidebar link). We would love to see them!
Ok, Mama needs to get her butt back in this chair and get to work. Hee, hee,hee"

"I hope she doesn't make us put all that fabric away."

Happy Friday!
xx, Harrington and Hannah

I vote for muted but I am a muted color kind of girl.

Vroomans' Quilts said...

It's all lovely, but I like what you call muted - to me it is country.

Crafty Green Poet said...

Beautiful fabrics - specially the muted selection!

Hannah has the most adorable nose

Tammy said...

Looks like muted is the choice so far! Add my vote to that one please. Is there a date for the book??

Shelley said...

My vote is for muted! Some yummy colors there:!

Cara said...

Bright! Butreally, it's all about value.

Kris said...

Well, kids, I think it would be a really nice gesture to at least offer to help put the fabric away. But when you do, take all that bright fabric, put it in a box and send it to me, would ya?? Have a great day!! oxox Aunt Kris

You two must be the BEST helpers:) Mama has a good eye for color combinations, I personally love the muted but both are very nice!

Kate said...

They're both quite beautiful but I prefer the second one.

Sheila said...

Both lovely but my vote is muted ,they are gorgeous!

Denise :) said...

Now *that* is my kind of happy mess!!! Happy Friday! :)

tink's mom said...

Well I'm basically a muted kind of person but the brights would be my choice if I were doing something for spring or Easter. Both are wonderful choices and combos.

Rachel said...

My mind is on Spring, so my vote would be brights :-) If the bunnies put the fabric away they have an open invitation to visit me at any time....for however long they want to :-)

Jade said...

BOTH! BOTH! Dang, how is a girl supposed to choose when they are both gorgeous?

LOVE that last pic of H&H, you bunnehs are just too cute for words--tell your mama that Auntie Jade says you deserve an extra treat for all that cute. :)

Muted...love those colors! Wishing hubby a speedy recovery. Blessings, Marlene

JCnNC said...

Both are beautiful - since you are asking me to pick, I will go with the brighter, more intense color... just my style. Thanks Bunnies for all your hard work. Judy C says "Take the weekend off."

CHRIS said...

Hi Shell, I really like the brights best. Come on over I just put a pic of my couch, funny. Chrisxxx

Christine M said...

They are all lovely fabrics. I like the more muted ones best but then again, they are my colours! Hugs to you all, Christine xx

MosaicMagpie said...

H and H, If you would like to come over and put some fabric away, I would appreciate it! I could bake you a carrot cake and we could have tea! Tell Mom, I like the bright colors best!

Jeanette said...

Both sets of colours are gorgeous but i love the brights. Hugs to you all.

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

Muted for me too. When I saw 'Briarside Lane', I thought of my friend Karen~ that's her blog! :-)

Kristi said...

I like the muted colors but that's just me! Both are beautiful!

kc said...

Hey you 2 bundles of cuteness! I love the brights - so cheery!! If you need a place to perch while mama sits, you'll be more than welcome to hop over to my place for a while! I'd let you play in my scraps all you want!

Barb said...

You know me, brighter the better...both choices are wonderful!

Rabbits' Guy said...

Muted - no, wait. Bright - um - muted, that's it - er no, brigh ... phooey. I'll go with the majority!

Elbow surgery - ouch, ouch ouch. That boy needs top notch care. (It's a guy thing.)

Have a nice weekend all ...

Jindi's Cottage said...

Now that is a fun mess...love the muted combo...the bright is very happy I just like the muted fabrics more...hope those bunnies helped with the putting away...and that David's elbow is starting to feel better...

Christina said...

I am late for Friday bunnies but how about a Happy Saturday instead. Help your mom put the fabric away if she needs you and be good to Papa.

joanne May said...

Wow, I love all those gorgeous patchwork colours. They are stunning!
Sorry to hear about David's arm. I hope he feels much better soon. Take care David!

Valentine's day was not that great for me either, but thank you for the fun e-card. You made me smile. ;-)

Happy weekend to you and the bunnies.
Hugs,
Jo. xxx

Quilt Kitty said...

Muma has the right idea, that is the only way to pick fabrics. I have always been the muted colour scheme lover but recently have moved to liking the brights better. Happy Friday bun-buns! Tracee xx

Elisabet said...

Those are some beautiful fabrics my friend!!! I am with the buns, don't want to be the one to have to put all that fabric away, lol!!
Hugs,
Beth

Jillayne said...

I'm partial to the muted - I think I have lavender issues...
and I think you bunnies have nothing to worry about - Mama wouldn't trust you to put away the fabric for all the carrots in Mr. McGregor's garden!

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Shell and bunnies,

I love all the fabrics, such gorgeous colours and can't wait to see what you create.
Do wish David a speedy recovery and hope is arm will be better.

Happy weekend
Hugs
Carolyn

webbsway said...

I don't know which is prettier - the fabric or the bunnies! Opps- do they know they are bunnies???????????

I would vote for the bright.

Hillbilly Tonya said...

Bright! Only I really thing the bunnies should have been able to help sort.

Carol Jordan said...

I like the brights, but I usually pick the stronger colors.

Poussy Stitches My Love said...

oh I love your rabbits !
bisous xxx de France

Linda Carole Bloom said...

Hi Bun Buns!! So cute!

Elly D said...

Well once upon a time ;)) I would have picked the muted colours but now I'm more leaning towards brighter colours so would pick them. LOL... not a lot of help am I!
What ever you choose I'm sure they will look gorgeous!
You have very well behaved bunnies there! They are adorable and cuddly looking. What a lovely big room you have there. Mind has become my sewing room! cum puter room! There is a sofa and chair in here somewhere, ;)) Bunnyhugs Ellyx

Karen ~ Briarside Lane said...

Just backtracking here... hope hubby is better. Elbow surgery? OUCH!

Love those muted shades!
