Slow Stitching and an Easter Bunny!!!

Just in time for Easter morning, I finished up my Cottontail Bunny small quilt!

Look at that cute little pink nose - ahhhhhh how sweet!

I did a FMQ "furry" stitch around the bunny ♥

I was very happy with how this stitch gave it a "real fur" look :)

Hand stitching a small sleeve for the hanger.....

And now Cottontail is gracing our fireplace in the living room ...
We love it!!!

Today, I'll be Slow Stitching along with others at Kathy's Quilts linky party!  

May Bertie is ready for her hand-stitched embellishments....
this may be my favorite hat of them all so far :)

Looks like Bertie has had enough of winter too - she's hauling in the flowers herself!  
She'll have Spring one way or the other LOL!!!

Not a lot of stitching on this month's quilt.  Just the green stems for the flowers, and gold for Bertie's foot and a black french knot for her eye.  Then I'll put a big black button in the center of the wheel.  And of course I'll add the details on the darling little bee!  Even the stitching around the frame is a simple one this month :)

And I thought I would show you the progress I've made on the final Blue Collection vase....

Not much done yet, but once the pieces are prepared it takes no time at all to actually applique them down, so this will be done soon.  I enjoy this type of applique so much!

Of course, all day today, my mind and heart will be on Jesus!!!!
