Crazy about Wool blog hop

Hi ya! I'm sooooooooooo excited to participate in this blog hop. A big thank you to Denise Russell of Pieced Brain for hosting such a fun event.

You know I love working with wool as it is featured in all my designs. It's so easy to work with and I love the texture it gives.


For this hop we were to design a new project. I don't know about you, but the months, days and weeks are flying by. It will be Christmas before we know it! I have become addicted to designing postcards. They are fast, easy and oh so fun to send through the mail. Of course, Harrington and Hannah are always my inspiration. Bunnies at Christmas are cool! ;)

This is a FREE design. Simply click the link below.

Since this is a blog hop about being crazy for wool, I have decided to share photos from my book, Fabled Fusions. It will be here by the second week in October. I can hardly wait! Actually, as you are reading this post, I am teaching my Folk Art Fusion to Cabin Branch Quilters guild in VA. I'll have some pictures to share next week. To preorder my book, click HERE.


This is "The Scarborough Hares."


"Lord and Lady Bugs"


"Peppermint Tea"


"A Spot of Peppermint Tea"


"O'Ryan the Stargazer"



"Wish Upon a Star"


"March of the Monarchs"



"Blooming Hearts"


"A Wild Hare"


"The Barrington Bees"


The bunnies and I hope you enjoyed your stay with us today. Now we invite you to hop over and visit these other talented participants.



 
Happy Hopping!
xx, Michelle and the Bunnies

OH! Michelle, I have never seen this "Wild Hare" pillow, EVER! I LOVE THIS! The steel gray color with the white rabbit and "pearls" looks as if this rabbit is flying through the night sky! This is a sensational piece, as are all the other works you are sharing here!

You have been working so hard my friend. But look at the outcome. And the Bunnyville employees look pleasantly exhausted from working their cotton tails off! But the benefits are great: banana chips and lots of love!

Hugs! Anita
