BOM catch ups......

My Favourite Things quilt top has been finished a while and the deadline for the finished quilt is looming..... Chookyblue is cracking the whip at us SAL gals - and we have less than 50 sleeps to go.... since I am going away in less than 20 sleeps the pressure is on!!!!

I have been procrastinating about the backing but finally the decision is made....


I'm making it..... 

Using up the left over fabric from the quilt and some additional metreage I had already from the same colours ......

I know I won't get the deadline..... that's a bit negative thinking but it is highly unlikely... but I'll give it my best shot.....

Meanwhile my evening TV stitching has been the July and August blocks of Harrington & Hannah... the free BOM from Michelle at Raspberry Rabbits....


don't we all need some free wishes every now and then?


the bees are loving springtime at the moment

I was so pleased with myself for having caught up... then the September block came out.... she is keeping me busy is our bunny loving Shell......

This is what all the blocks look like so far...... (minus September.... !!!!)


I was looking for some eyes... I couldn't find them.... so I bought some more... then I found them.... so now I have lots.... so I put them in a glass jar... so I wouldn't lose them again... they are watching me....


Righto, Gotto Go... the eyes are looking...... (creepy huh?)

  11. Oh gosh - how funny about those eyes - and all the comments - I was going to say the "eyes' have it but got beaten to the punch . The bunnies are so cute. I still have a few strips to put together for SKOw and then to quilt...(oh the pressure!!)I think a pieced backing is a great idea - else you end up with more stash.

  20. Hope those eyes have kept you on track this weekend.
    As always your projects look amazing - pieced backing works but sometimes it is nice to go with an easy option!
    Enjoy those bunnies - you're hopping with them.

  21. Good luck with the backing and the deadline. Great idea to piece the backing. What else would you use that fabric for anyway? :)
    I am impressed with all the bunny blocks. That is going to look great, too.
    So do you feel like all the eyes in the jar are following you around the room?
