Our Day on the Dot's on Dot's Hop!

Woo hoo! It's our day and we are so excited! We want to send a special thank you to the lovely duo, Corrie and Des of Quilt Taffy for hosting this fun hop and we also want to send big hugs and thanks to the fabulous Madame Samm for organizing these events!


The bunnies and I are excited to release our new Folk Art Fusion pattern, "The Hare's Lair."


This 12" mini quilt combines wool applique, hand stitching, hand quilting and a few embellishments like buttons and beads! This is the perfect little project to carry along with you to appointments, soccer games, or travels. Hand stitching is so relaxing and with our busy lives, we could all use a little relaxation while at the same time being productive!


The Pattern and Kit's (sold separately) are available in our SHOP.


This mini quilt fit's perfectly on this 12" x 14" Table Stand. Remember, these stands and all the hangers have been marked down 15% in our shop. Once they're gone, they're gone. We won't be carrying them any longer.


In fact, we decided the last 6" bunny hanger would make a really fun GIVEAWAY for this hop. To enter the giveaway leave a comment on this post. If you are signed up as a follower (on the right) then you get two chances! The bunnies and I will use the random number generator to select the winner on Monday, September 24th.


Now we invite you to hop over and visit these lovely bloggers who we are honored to share this day with. Happy Hopping!

MUCH LOVE! Anita

Michelle-Your Rabbit's Lair Block is stunning! The hand work is beautiful. I haven't done much handwork lately, I guess I'm looking for the perfect project. Your bunny hiding is so sweet, I have 3 cats that keep me busy. My little black, Tabitha, has discovered she can take pins out of my projects with her teeth-OMG! She's such a "pistol" so I have to be very careful with such a smart little rascal. Thanks for sharing
