Hopping on the Bunny Cart

A hoppy good day to you, sweet friends!!!   

It's official! I have gone bunny crazy!!!

 A glimpse of Waxing Moon's "Spring Trio", The Hopper House   and  Love Grows Here

  I have been itching to pull out spring decor and when I saw so many have started to decorate for spring and Easter , of course I had to jump on the bunny cart.  ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿฐ

With Thy Needle and Thread "Bunny & Co."  and  my 1869 Bunny Hop

Today I wanted to show you the cutest craft that  uses this Dollar Tree bunny. 

This sweet gal is cute as can be, but I am going to prim her up.

Lisa of Our Shabby Cottage posted this Spring craft along with other crafts on her  Youtube channel a couple of weeks ago, and I immediately became quite smitten. Using hot glue, fabrics, buttons, and lace,  I  swept up my little bunny and went to town   using Lisa's tutorial.  Soon my little bunny whom I named Flo,  received her bunny makeover .

The bunny looks quite different after her makeover. 

 Flo might not be as fancy or as cute as Lisa's bunny, but I sure enjoyed working on her.  If you are interested in watching the video  the bunny craft starts at 16.56 minutes. 

I added blush to Flo's cheeks. The whites of her eyes is scraps of cross stitch aida.

I also have a new Bunny Mini Sampler

 The other day I posted the Mini Tulip Sampler . I was so excited to  hear all of the ideas that many of you sent me for more minis. Thank you for the giving me so many fabulous suggestions and for the inspiration. So more minis will be on the way. ๐Ÿค—

The little mini samplers have a lower case alphabet and a small motif. I try to keep them around the same size which is small. I am making mine into wee pin pillows to put into a dough bowl.

 I use yarn that I have in my stash as trim. I just twist it and whip stitch it to the seam around the pillow.

On Tuesday , I completed this little Prairie Schooler mini. Another sweet rabbit to add to my Easter collection . I used my own floss colors which I had on hand which included DMC 898, 937, 221, 3371. 

Prairie Schooler mini finished as an ornament.

Today is Embroidery Thursday. 


I am not working on a bunny stitch, but I am working on a prim spring stitchery called Spring Checklist.  I coffee dyed some cotton fabric to embroidery this little piece on. The fabric is very grungy looking. Don't you think?


A new Spring stitchery is going in the hoop. 


If you would like to stitch it , please grab the image and use for your stitching pleasure. 


 A little doodle just for you.   My doodles are hand drawn and never perfect. ❤

UPDATE: March 11, 2024. I finished piecing Spring Checklist and posted the measurements in the March 11, 2024 post.
Do you see the  empty bird's nest in the burning bush? Perhaps a birdie will move into it soon. 


I guess we better get hopping . I know you have places to go and things to do. 
A new bunny is in the works. 

 As always...

Happy quilting and stitching, y'all
