It's Time! It's Time!

It's Mid-Month Madness!


Welcome to our first Mid-Month Madness! Every month will be something completely different. It might be one of my new Folk Art Fusion designs, it might be a tutorial, it might just be a crazy tale or two. BUT! No matter what you may find, there will always, always be a giveaway!!! After all, prizes are most exciting indeed and it's truly fun to look forward to something that requires no work at all!

So are you as mad as a hatter and ready to see where the rabbit hole leads us this month? Hmm? Well let's go!


Remember a little while ago I showed you this sneaky peaky? Did you ponder, wonder, or guess what it could be? Well...


it's my new Folk Art Fusion design, Rabbit Romance! Love and silliness is in the air here in Bunnyville. This is a fast, fun and easy 12" pillow to make. It's the perfect project to get you hopping into the new year!


There's hand stitching, wool applique, embellishing and patchwork.


The pattern, as well as, Valdani 3 strand, floss and National Nonwovens wool felt kits are available in my SHOP. 

Soooooooooooooooooo, what will our Madness giveaway be this month? I know! I know! Let's have a giveaway of three. Yes, three indeed! One, two three, yippee!


Harrington and Hannah, with help from the random number generator, will select THREE lucky winners to receive the Rabbit Romance pattern. To enter this giveaway, leave a comment on this post. As always, if you are signed up as a follower of our blog, you will receive two chances!

The three winners will be announced this Friday, so be sure and hop back and visit. Oh, and if you purchase the pattern from me ahead of time, and then are selected as a winner, I will refund the cost of the pattern to you. Easy!


Good luck and have a wonderfully, mad and marvelous day!

xx, Michelle and the Bunnies

Oh gosh -- I could never make that and do it justice .. so not an entry, just wanted to say how gorgeous/awesome that is.

Of course, if you did want to include me in the draw.. and I won.. I'd like to receive my prize in the form of Harrington getting a snuggle. Probably cheaper on postage! ;)

Stitched With Prayer said...

Oh my gosh!!! I hopped onto your page to show my hubby your beautiful and handsome Hanna and Harrington because he our friends sweet bunny died last night and my hubby asked me how many people I knew who had rabbits for house pet? Well...he admitted he was very impressed with your sweet kids and now he understood why Judy was so upset about her furry babes passing. Then, to my surprise, I found I had hopped into a wonderful giveaway, though I believe if I'm lucky enough to win, I will pass the gorgeous treasures on to Judy, maybe it will brighten her sad days a bit. So, as a long time follower of your blog, I would love to be counted in on this fun giveaway. Thanks so much for the chance. Big Hugs...
***Hey Michelle, my hubs asked if you have any damage to your house or furniture from the bunnies 'cribbing'. I told him I didn't think so, but I would ask you. More Hugs...
