Christmas Inspiration

Isn't it funny where inspiration comes from sometimes? I've been pondering some Christmas pattern ideas for the last few weeks and listened to what everyone said regarding the questions I posted, but still, nothing was really "wowing" me. I want something different.


Then out of the blue, I received a gift from my dear bunny friend, Christina. (Thank you!!) She was inspired to send me this wonderful gift after reading my post on The Fairy Dance with my niece, Noelle. Click here if you would like to read it.

I looooooove this photograph and have framed it to hang in Bunnyville. Yesterday, while pondering yet again on what kind of Christmas design I wanted, I looked up at this photograph and Ka-Pow! It hit me!


I sat down and sketched and sketched and fine tuned. Once I was satisfied with the sketches I drew the final design. Then I did the happy bunny dance. ;)  This design will be available November 5th, after I return from the Houston Quilt Market.


Speaking of the Quilt Market, I have some very exciting news regarding this pile of color. I will share it with you on November 5th as well. I can't wait! (Insert happy bunny dance again)

Ok. Back to work I go. Have a fun day and see ya back here on Friday.

xx, Michelle and the Bunnies

I love it and I have great fabric for this, I cant wait to see what you do with wool. Will you be sharing the design? I think this would make a great bundle project to sale, I have never been inspired really to use wool, felt or what have you, but I love the fairy..
