Just Sharing!
(more wabbits, too)

You've seen all the wonderful treasures Carrie sent to me for our Tea Time Swap and I directed you to her blog to see what I sent her. Thought it might be fun to share a picture here, too.

My theme for her was a "Tea Party for One" so I sent a table topper for her tea table; a teapot/teacup/saucer combination with a teabag for her tea; a calorie free dessert (cupcake pincushion with cute cupcake pin) and included a scissor fob and mini teapot just for fun. I've had that teapot fabric in my stash for several years and remembered it as soon as I accepted Stephanie's invitation for the swap. I have enough fabric for a second table topper - hmmmm! LOL

I've been stitching, stitching, stitching and stitching some more! Blocks #4, 5, 6, 7 & 8. To my delight yesterday the postman brought a package with my Chelsea Manor fabric I just ordered on Thursday from The Fat Quarter Shop - WooHoo!!!!!

I'm stitching my "Rabbits Prefer Embroidery" on Moda Bella (ivory) and have fallen totally in love with this fabric. I've used it in the past as a background for a quilt but this is the first time I've used it for embroidery - wowzer! I'm thinking I need to buy yards and yards to keep on hand for future embroidery projects - if you have an opportunity to try it please do.

Have you spent time with your needle and thread this week end? I don't have to explain the bliss you feel when you do so please take a stitch or two.
I hope you've enjoyed your visit - come again very soon!
In Friendship~

There are too many yummy fabrics to keep up with! The stichery is coming along fast, it must be rabbit season.

Your stitching is truly fantastic. The bunny's look like they are having fun and you sure are having fun stitching them. I'll have to watch out for that fabric.
