You Got Bunnies? And Bunny House Saltbox Freebie.

 Well, hello there Honey Bunny! And a very Happy Saturday to you. So how about it ? Do you have a fluffle of bunnies hopping about? 

 They are still multiplying here. But I guess that is what happens at The Bunny House - that's the name of my newest  saltbox. πŸ˜πŸ‡πŸ°πŸ‘―

This little house was on my finishing table yesterday. I trimmed around my stitch a little over 1/2" before sewing it into a little pillow. 

Oh , I do hope you like this little house. It is nestled in a vine of flowers . The vine is stitched in DMC 469, 355, 352, and Blanc. 

Three little bunnies are hopping their were up and over the house. Wouldn't that be a sight to behold? πŸ‡πŸ‡πŸ‡  HOP! HOP! HOP!

The Bunny House was a pretty quick stitch with only 12 DMC floss colors including 168, 469, 352, 355, 610, 676, 831, 869, 844, 926, 3863 and Blanc. 

🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡

If you are interested in stitching this piece,  just grab , the images. For printing tips, refer to the post Tips for Printing which has loads of tips from my sweet friends. 

🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡

OOOPS- If you printed the Instruction page before May 9, 2024 there was a mistake in the Floss Symbols. DMC 926 should be the symbol "X". I apologize.  Below is the corrected Instruction page. 

If you ever see any mistakes on my charts, please let me know. I truly appreciate it. ❤







So what do you think? Do you think you could live in a house where you would hear the pitter patter of paws pouncing on the roof?  Hoppity ! Hop!   I think I could! πŸ‡πŸ°πŸ‡

Soon I will be wrangling up all of my little hoppers that are scattered about.

Perhaps I need to put away the bunny bait first- like my carrot quilts.
 
 
While camping, Mr. Pinker and I also visited  few thrift shops. I purchased a few items that will be on display next year in the "carrot theme" . 

Isn't that teapot adorable? The vintage pot holder will be used in my bee and sunflower decor as will the piece of pottery. The little chick egg holder will soon move to my hutch.  I will show you more of my thrifty finds in future posts. These items were bought in Arkansas. 


Run don't walk!!!!    Pam Buda of Heartspun Quilts has posted a  Doll Dowry Quilt called Spring Burst . It is FREE through Sunday, April 21, 2024;  so I do hope you drop by her blog for the details. If you click the colored links, you will be sent to Pam's blog . The pattern can be found at her website under the "Digital Downloads". 

Well , Sweeties, I better let you go. You may have your own bunnies to wrangle, but if you get finished early, hop on over to my house with your bunny net. I could use all the help I can get to catch these little happy hares. Have a hoppy happy day and...


As Always...

Happy quilting and stitching, y'all

Melisa

Hugs and Stitches!!! πŸ€—❤🧡

Dedicated to my sweet baby sister, Amy. I love and miss you so much, Amo! πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—

I took along my heart applique blocks while camping. I always think of you when working on the hearts. Eeeh ! Yes!!! Chickens are a great idea. We do need a Chicken Sampler. My mind is spinning with ideas- thank you so much , sweet friend. Hugs.

    1. Good morning, Pamela. I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I have had a lot of compliments on that cute little bunny. It is a design from Val's Stuff and is called "Spring 's a Buzzin'" . It was a fun little stitch. I found where the shop Everything Cross stitch has it in stock and Silver Needle used to have it . The Silver Needle has a lot of Val's designs. Thank you for the sweet visit and for asking about that little stitch. Have a wonderful week. Hugs.
